Compensation Analysis: A Practitioner's Guide to Identifying and Addressing Pay Disparities
ISBN: 978 9749895 2 5
Patrick Nooren's Compensation Analysis book provides a detailed overview of pay equity analyses with an eye toward OFCCP compliance. It’s written in a way that's accessible to the "stat-phobic" layperson with discussions of pay equity statistics, plaintiff and defense strategies, and tactics for addressing non-defensible pay disparities.

Given the dynamic nature of the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP), it should come as no surprise that the chapter in this book dealing with OFCCP-specific compensation enforcement (How the OFCCP Will Likely Evaluate the Data, pages 80-93) is out of date. Since the initial publication of this book in 2010, the OFCCP has changed enforcement strategies several times, including rescission of the 2006 Standards and Guidelines and release of Directive 307, which outlines their “new” enforcement strategies. Further, the President has called for new proposed regulations by the OFCCP to collect and analyze summary compensation data from all federal contractors, requiring a whole new set of strategies. The bottom line is this . . . more so than ever, federal contractors need to be proactive about identifying and rectifying non-job-related disparities in compensation between similar employees. As the dust settles from all of this activity, Biddle Consulting Group will release an updated version of this book to address the (then) current OFCCP enforcement strategies.
Stay tuned, and hold-on tight for what I anticipate to be a very turbulent next couple of years.
