Compensation Systems Analysis

Compensation systems analysis continues to be an extremely important issue in OFCCP compliance evaluations. The time to audit and assess company compensation pay practices is now.   Your compensation systems should be reviewed at least once a year and well in advance of an OFCCP compliance evaluation so that corrective actions can be addressed.

THOMAS HOUSTON assists its clients with this annual requirement by including a Comparative Salary Report (CSR) in our Affirmative Action Plan Services Package as a starting point to assist organizations in conducting a compensation equity analysis. THOMAS HOUSTON offers several other types of independent compensation equity analyses upon request.
