Proposed H-1B falls short

Proposed H-1B is not a re-do!

New H-1B bill would raise the salary threshold to $100,000 (from $60,000) a year and includes a provision for inflation adjustments. It eliminates the master's degree exemption altogether.

In a statement, the proposer said that the government needs "to make sure programs are not abused to allow companies to outsource and hire cheap foreign labor from abroad to replace American workers."

Even so, the bill is not broad H-1B reform.

The new administration has indicated support for raising H-1B visa salaries across the board by changing the prevailing wages. The prevailing wage sets four levels for each occupation. Most H-1B workers are paid either level 1, beginner, or level 2 wages. The level 3 prevailing wage represents the 50th percentile or the median.

Executive pay disclosure requirements are complex

Dodd-Frank executive pay disclosure rears its head

The pay-for-performance proposal is part of the Dodd-Frank law's disclosure package involving executive pay. It requires, among other things, that public companies disclose the ratio of the C-Level executives annual total compensation to the median annual total compensation of all other employees.

In a recent compliance update, the SEC's Division of Corporation Finance said registrants can use any reasonable "consistently applied compensation measure" (CACM) to identify the annual compensation of employees.

"The appropriateness of any measure will depend on the registrant's particular facts and circumstances," the SEC said, noting that, for example, total cash compensation could be a CACM unless the registrant also distributed annual equity awards widely among its employees.

Multiple salary surveys are a must for compensation management

Multiple salary surveys are a must for compensation management

The HR and IT function should be collecting as much data from reputable sources as possible - that means typically three salary surveys that have good coverage of an industry or geography.  One way is to participate more salary surveys to qualify for discounts, increase networking with peers in other companies, and get a better range of results than  you can get with a single surve.

It is the CIOs and HR's responsibility to effectively manage the organization's investment in salary surveys. It is important to always have an idea of what products are out there. By gathering more data, you'll be equipped to establish whether a particular survey is consistently higher or lower than another for similarly defined jobs. Despite a constantly changing workplace where jobs rapidly change or don't exist at all, survey data continues to be a mainstay for effectively managing compensation.

Are men paid $10K higher than women for the same job?

Are men paid $10K higher than women for the same job?

Order CIO Job Description

Men in IT earn a median of $82,370 a year compared to $72,035 for women, according to new data by the U.S. Census Bureau.

The Census Bureau didn't offer any theories about the wage gap highlighted in its data, but the raw numbers may not tell the real story, according to Victor Janulaitis, CEO of Janco Associates, an IT workforce research firm.

In terms of IT, women now have more management positions than at anytime in the past, said Janulaitis. Of the largest 1,000 corporations, more than 19% of the CIOs were women, according to his data.

In terms of the wage disparity, Janulaitis notes that the census bureau deals with averages. "Many of the entry-level positions in IT are taken up by women who are 're-entering' the IT labor force after they have started a family," said Janulaitis. "In our surveys and analysis of compensation, we find no correlation between gender and compensation. Rather, the contributor to compensation is length of time in a position or with a company."
