I found out thanks to a male coworker doing me a solid and telling me. For the record, any guys who are interested in being allies to women - this is a way to really do it

For the same role or overall? For the same role, besides straight up asking the person it's hard... I am going through something similar now. Only real way I think is to have a lawyer send a letter to HR asking them to explain a "real business purpose" as to why a female is paid less than a male. Other than that, I'm not sure what else you can do...

If there are multiple salaries reported and you're on the lower end of it. Ask other women at the agency to do the same: not to tell you their salary, but ask if they are on the lower end compared to the average at Glassdoor. If the majority says yes - then you might be onto something.

Seeing that there's so many rishta questions and the rishta bowl not being the most active, I thought I'd do us all a solid and make an ISO post for anyone looking to post their info to. Anyone interested in someone's profile DM them directly. Format for posting: Gender / Age / Location / Height (if comfortable with sharing) / Citizenship ( if comfortable with sharing) / any other info about yourself or what you're looking for Let's get people married in 2022! 🎉

Kind of aggravated with the example male leadership is setting right now with regard to parenting at CV. At least 5 men in leadership have had new babies in the last month and it seems like some have taken no time off or only the bare minimum. We have 12 weeks and should be encouraged to use it! If leadership isn’t taking advantage of their own policy, what does that say to the rest of the staff? In my perspective, this is likely further contributing to the gender disparity in CV leadership

In CA here. One of my friends reached out to me saying they submitted their notice (30 days) at their current employer who then pushed back saying they require 60 days notice? I’ve never heard of this before in my industry (tech), but is this something that is common/enforceable in the medical field? I’ve advised my friend to seek legal counsel, but wanted to see if anyone here would know if any claims against my friend would hold up in CA since we are an at-will state.
