California's 2016 Fair Pay Act and What it Means for Your Business

Gain a better understanding of the California's Fair Pay Act and keep your company compliant.

Effective January 1, 2016, California amended its Equal Pay Act to strip employers of many of the defenses traditionally used to ward off litigation attacking differences in wages based on sex. This topic will cover the basics of the new amendments, identify strategies for how to audit your pay systems to avoid costly litigation, and provide practical tips for ensuring compliance with the Act.
