California’s Equal Pay Act

California_s Equal Pay Act

California’s Equal Pay Act has been amended in recent years to offer stronger protections to employees.

Under the law, which applies to all employers, an employer cannot pay an employee less than employees of a different gender, race, or ethnicity for substantially similar work.

It’s also illegal for California employers to tell employees not to discuss their wages or to retaliate against an employee who has exercised his or her rights under the equal pay laws.

Employees who are receiving lower pay than a coworker of a different gender, race, or ethnicity in a substantially similar job may file an administrative complaint with the California Labor Commissioner or file suit in court.
