    Gender Equity Pay Law: Fair Ways to Challenge Wage Gaps!

    in Business

    Join us today for Women Lead Radio as Michelle Bergquist, your host of Women Who Lead, interviews Denise Visconti, Office Managing Shareholder at Littler Mendelson, P.C.
    As of January 1st, 2016, California employers are required to adhere to the Fair Pay Act, SB 358, which prohibits employers from paying employees differently based on gender.  Employers must have a non-sex-based reason, or a reason that is supported by an identifiable business necessity, for any differentials that might exist between the compensation they are paying employees performing “substantially similar work.”  
    This new law also allows employees to discuss their salary and wages and ask questions of their employer relating to compensation without fear of retribution.  Under the Fair Pay Act, not only is this type of discussion allowed, and therefore enables everyone to determine if they are being paid an equal wage for “substantially similar work,” but such discussions are protected.  Any employee who asks questions about their pay or takes action to rectify an existing wage gap also is protected.
    Denise specializes in employment and wage and hour litigation. She also regularly counsels employers regarding compliance with federal, state and local laws and regulations that govern the workplace.
    As the CEO and Co-Founder of Connected Women of Influence, Michelle Bergquist is a passionate advocate for women in business.

    Be Honest About Who You Are: Change Your Life and Your Business!

    in Business

    Join us today for Women Lead Radio, as Shawn Marie Turi, your host of Business is Personal, interviews Lindsey Witmer Collins, Founder and Software Architect at Lindsey Witmer Collins.


    Being honest about whom you really are changes your life and your business! (from a girl who knows and created something from nothing!) With a focus on high-end, high-impact projects, she and her team have designed and developed cross-platform mobile applications and have earned as many as 15,000 daily downloads and have accelerated the growth of marketing lists by as much as 400% for dozens of their clients. She's also earned the trust of some very high profile and well known mobile app brands. Her mission? To give everything she knows about software and to become a perfectionist about yours.


    Before building apps for non-tech entrepreneurs, she spent two and a half years and nearly $100K creating and iterating her own wellness application, while studying with an MIT aesthetic engineer at the same time. This experience, and especially the expensive (and entirely avoidable) mistakes she made along the way, taught her how to create an effective efficient business... and succeed, with simple software that works... not just on the code level, but on a human one.


    Shawn Marie Turi is your host of Business IS Personal: (What you do and WHY you do it… MATTERS!), a show focused on interviewing remarkable professional women and entrepreneurs who are doing what they love, kicking ass and believe that ‘Business IS (in fact) Personal’…and what we do, how we do it, and most importantly, why we do it really does matter!
