Equal Pay Made Easy: A Common Sense Method of Complying with
California's New Fair Pay Act
September 19, 2018
8:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m.
For decades the California Equal Pay Act has prohibited an employer from paying its employees less than employees of the opposite sex for equal work. On October 6, 2015, Governor Brown signed the California Fair Pay Act (SB 358), which strengthened the Equal Pay Act in a number of ways. Then, on September 30, 2016, Governor Brown signed two other bills into law - SB 1063 which added race and ethnicity as protected categories under the Fair Pay Act, and AB 1676 - which prohibits employers from justifying a sex-, race-, or ethnicity-based pay differences solely on the grounds of prior salary. California's Fair Pay Act is now known as one of the strictest in the nation.
Lukas Clary of Weintraub Tobin will discuss California's Fair Pay Act and what it means for employers, and will provide practical tips on how to comply and avoid potential legal pitfalls.
