CDF Webinar: How to Comply With the California Fair Pay Act & Avoid Litigation
California’s Fair Pay Act is one of the strictest laws of its kind in the country. The requirements under the Fair Pay Act, which became effective on January 1, 2016, significantly expand employers’ duties to eliminate wage gaps based on sex. Because the Fair Pay Act still leaves many questions unanswered, it’s imperative for employers to follow best practices, not only to comply with the new law, but also to avoid costly litigation. In addition, this webinar will discuss AB 1209, a very controversial bill sitting on Governor Brown’s desk that sets forth intrusive gender pay reporting requirements for large employers in California.
This complimentary 1-hour webinar is designed to provide information to in-house counsel, HR professionals and business owners about the legal implications of the California Fair Pay Act, as well as critical steps to avoid potential liability.
During this webinar, we will discuss:
- The requirements, definitions, burdens of proof, and damages available under the law
- The ambiguities under the law and tips for compliance
- What to expect if sued under the Fair Pay Act
- Evaluating the risks of class actions and representative actions under PAGA
- Conducting audits to ensure compliance
- Best practices and strategies for compliance, with tips for small and large employers
- Potential impact of the Salary Inquiry Ban in AB 168
- Potential impact of the Gender Pay Gap Transparency Act in AB 1209
