As with any community, there are simple rules of etiquette that guide the group in communicating with ease and ensure a free flow of information:
As a reminder we want to ensure that you are aware of our position on the sharing of compensation-related information.
WisHHRA prohibits and does not sanction the sharing of compensation related information among members. The sharing of this information is prohibited by federal antitrust law. The alleged sharing of compensation related information has been the subject of several lawsuits against hospitals and healthcare-related human resource organization. As a result, we want to ensure that all members are aware of our policy and our commitment that the unsanctioned sharing of compensation related information is prohibited.
On a regular basis, WisHHRA will work with a third party partner, Newport Group, to conduct wage surveys as a benefit to our members. When we do so, we ask Newport Group, to ensure that the wage survey always complies with federal antitrust law.
While the sharing of compensation-related is generally prohibited, it is permissible to share compensation-related information if the wage survey is gathered and managed by a third party, seeks out data that is more than three months old and involves at least five participants, when no individual participant accounts for more than 25% on a weighted basis of the statistic reported, and the data is aggregated such that it would not be possible to identify the data of any particular participant. We feel our past wage surveys are well within the bounds of the law and will continue to ensure compliance with federal antitrust law.
We ask you to ensure that WisHHRA remains a solidly grounded organization through which our members feel they are able to share helpful information on human resources and build relationships among colleagues without running afoul of the federal law.
