Webinar to Give Calif. Employers Best Practices for Pay Equity Laws

A CalChamber webinar on Tuesday will break down what employers need to know about California’s pay equity laws and will provide best practices so employers can ensure their workplace policies are compliant.

Since the 2015 Fair Pay Act, California has passed numerous employment laws addressing pay disparities by gender, race, or ethnicity. Other laws include prohibiting salary history inquiries during recruitment, requiring pay data reporting from larger employers, and, most recently, requiring all employers to divulge salary ranges for positions upon request from applicants and employees.

Even inadvertent pay differences may leave employers exposed to claims under this complex body of laws and regulations.

Webinar Runs on May 16

The “On Equal Foot Footing: Best Employer Practices for Pay Equity Laws live webinar will be held on Tuesday, May 16 from 10 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. PT.
