Survey Viewing Option

As an added benefit of membership, for Corporate and Partner members that are unable to participate, your HR/management staff can schedule a time to come in and view the local wage & salary surveys and take notes. Partner members also have the added benefit of being able to view both the local and national wage and benefits surveys.

To order one or more surveys, please print and complete the order form below, and return.

Minimizing Risk of Antitrust Violations

Rochester Chamber helps organizations safely obtain salary, wage, and benefits data by ensuring compliance with U.S. Department of Justice guidelines. To preserve the integrity of the survey process, all data received by Rochester Chamber from participating members is treated as strictly confidential and is provided in aggregate format. No company-specific data will not be shared with any other outside entity or individual.

Participation by competing employers in surveys of employee salaries, wages or benefits does not necessarily raise antitrust concerns. In fact, such surveys can have significant benefits. Employers can use information derived from benchmarking surveys to offer competitive compensation and benefits that attract and retain qualified employees. However, information exchanges among competing employers are more likely to fall within an antitrust safety zone where the following conditions are satisfied:

1. The surveys are managed by a reputable third-party provider like Rochester Chamber.

2. The information provided by survey participants is based on data more than 3 months old.

3. There are at least 5 organization’s reporting data and no individual respondent’s data represents more than 25% on a weighted basis of that statistic, and,

4. Any information disseminated is sufficiently aggregated such that it would not allow recipients to identify the compensation paid or benefits provided by any particular organization.

HR professionals who conduct formal or informal salary surveys on their own are engaging in risky, potentially illegal behavior. Read helpful guidance on this topic here.
