Denise Hoggard Addresses Equal Pay for Women
During her more than 30 years of practicing employment law, Arkansas Bar Association President-Elect Designee and Rainwater, Holt & Sexton attorney, Denise Reid Hoggard, has seen the state’s gender pay gap budged by just 10 percent. She explains that proving discrimination under the Arkansas Equal Pay Act falls on the employee. And in an at-will employment state—such as Arkansas—employees can be terminated for breaking even insignificant rules. While progress is being made to close the pay gap, Denise urges government leaders to step up and help.
