LEXISNEXIS RISK SOLUTIONS TO PAY OVER $1.2M IN BACK PAY AND INTEREST TO RESOLVE ALLEGATIONS OF PAY DISCRIMINATION

LexisNexis Risk Solutions, the computer-assisted legal research service, will pay over $1.2 million to resolve systemic pay discrimination against women after the result of two OFCCP compliance reviews in the southeast region.

OFCCP determined through two separate investigations that, as of December 2012 and continuing thereafter, LexisNexis paid 26 women in Operational Leadership positions substantially less than males employed in the same jobs at their Boca Raton, FL location.  Additionally, the investigation found that LexisNexis paid 185 female employees in Operational Leadership jobs substantially less than their male counterparts in their Alpharetta, GA location.

Without admitting liability, LexisNexis has agreed to pay over $1.2million in back pay and interest, and to monitor practices that affect compensation for women adversely.  The company will also pay over $45,000 in salary adjustments to women employed at the Boca Raton facility and will conduct an annual compensation analysis during the term of the conciliation agreement.  Press Release
