City Council Regular
Meeting Date: 01/15/2019  
Subject:    Receive and Approve 2019 Pay Equity Implementation Report Approval
Submitted For: Matt Stemwedel From: Jill Pocklington, Human Resources Coordinator

The City Council is asked to approve the City of Coon Rapids' 2019 Pay Equity Implementation Report.
The Minnesota Legislature passed the Local Government Pay Equity Act in 1984. This act required political subdivisions to establish equitable compensation relationships between female-dominated, male-dominated and balanced classes of employees to eliminate gender based wage disparities. Essentially, female-dominated employee classes cannot be consistently compensated below male-dominated classes when performing comparable work.

This act requires that the City submit a report to the State's Department of Employee Relations (DOER) providing actual wage and job evaluation information for employees every three years. The last report was submitted in 2016 and the City was found to be in compliance with pay equity standards. The City must now submit a report by January 31, 2019 that reflects data as of December 31, 2018.

This memorandum includes two attachments for Council's review. The first attachment, called the "Pay Equity Implementation Report" provides basic information about the City and its compensation system. The Mayor must sign this report before it is submitted to the DOER. The second attachment, called "Compliance Report" provides the initial statistical analysis of the City data that was entered in to the DOER's pay equity system. Based upon this analysis, it appears that the City has met pay equity standards again. The DOER will review the information after it has been formally submitted and will provide the City with an official decision regarding pay equity compliance.
Staff recommends that the Council, by motion, receive and approve the 2019 Pay Equity Report as submitted.
