Faculty Salary Equity: Issues and Options. AIR 1993 Annual Forum Paper.
Snyder, Julie K.; And Others
This paper presents a multi-phased approach to identifying and correcting gender-based salary inequities within institutions of higher education. The major steps in this approach involve: (1) determining if a problem situation exists by using a conceptually sound, objective procedure that does a legal and effective job of explaining faculty salaries; (2) developing feasible adjustment strategies if inequities exist which solve or improve the situation; and (3) implementing corrective actions and establishing a monitoring process that is consistent with the culture and values of the institution. The paper focuses on the issues surrounding the development of a salary equity study using regression analysis. This is not only a common methodology for identifying the location and magnitude of problems related to faculty salaries, but is also being increasingly used by both plaintiffs and defendants in salary discrimination litigation. The paper concludes with a discussion of the implementation issues that exist that may present themselves during the process. Contains 29 references. (GLR)
