In March of 2021, many California employers will be required to submit to the state their employee pay data categorized by race/ethnicity and gender, as part of a new law designed to increase
pay data transparency and eliminate pay disparities. This comes on the heels of California’s continued expansion of the California Fair Pay Act of 2015, which prohibits employers from paying employees of different gender and/or race/ethnicity less for substantially similar work. Join Lara de Leon, employment attorney, and Paul White, Ph.D. labor economist, for a discussion of the legal and practical implications of these requirements for employers. Topics covered will include an overview of the legislation, the information necessary to comply with the provisions, the legal and statistical considerations when conducting compensation analyses, and recommendations for employers.
