As part of the agreement, Princeton is also going to «enhance future compliance proactively,» according to the Labor Department, including conducting pay equity trainings and statistical analyses to see if disparities exist now.

«The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs is satisfied that Princeton University has pursued an early resolution conciliation agreement, and addressed the issues found in our review,» Craig E. Leen, the OFCCP’s director, said in a statement.

«Early resolution conciliation agreements are an effective tool for contractors to ensure equitable pay to employees, enhance internal salary equity reviews, and proactively correct any disparities uncovered,» Leen said.
