Gregory Keating was quoted in Law360, Society for Human Resource Management and Bloomberg BNA, where he discusses the impact of the proposed EEOC changes that would require large employers to report compensation information as part of their annual EEO-1 filings.  He explains why the new mandate will be a huge burden for employers, stating that it will take a lot of manpower and IT resources.  Gregory also suggests that the data being sent to the government, collected from W-2 forms, could inherently be unreliable because it will ignore subjective factors related to pay.
