SB 358, California’s Fair Pay Act (Labor Code § 1197.5): requires that men and women receive equal pay for substantially similar work even if they work in different locations. The legislation was passed in 2016. In response to this, in particular to assist with implementation of the new law, the California Commission on the Status of Women and Girls created the California Pay Equity Task Force. The Task Force has issued extensive guidance for employers including, “Tips for Pay Equity Compliance”, “Step by Step Pay Equity Evaluation”, and “How to Promote Pay Equity Culture.”
