Notes from Kona and the 2012 NILG Meeting

For those of you who do not know, the National Industry Liaison Group (“NILG”) held its annual meeting at Kona, on the Big Island of Hawaii August 27-31, 2012. For those of you unfamiliar with the NILG, please go to: www.nationalilg.org

Most lasting impression (other than pink/purple sunsets with a fireball red sun sinking into the ocean over the horizon):

  • Keynote speaker Lilly Ledbetter sitting at a table signing her book at the head of a line of NILG attendees 30-40 yards long…ALL women.

Fox Takeaway: While compensation discrimination is in fact a very small dollar value and very small volume issue in our society, the issue is not yet going away. Indeed, there is a great deal of continuing interest in this issue.
