Are you In Compliance with the

California Fair Pay Act

California’s Fair Pay Act continues to be under-recognized as an important law by employers, creating the risk of EECO complaints or lawsuits. The fundamental target of the law is unfair or discriminatory pay practices, with an expansion this year that bars asking candidates for salary history. Employers need to perform a compensation review that includes a comparison of salaries by gender and “substantially similar” positions, and resolution of identified disparities. And employment applications must be modified to remove commonly asked salary history questions.
