CDF Webinar: What is “Fair”? - Complying with California’s Fair Pay Act
Like many California employment laws, the Fair Pay Act is one of, if not the strictest law of its kind in the country. The requirements under the new law, which became effective on January 1, 2016, differ in many respects from California’s previous Equal Pay Act and significantly expand employers’ duties to eliminate wage gaps based on sex. California employers should be prepared for a surge in litigation under the new law. In addition, because the Fair Pay Act leaves many questions unanswered, it is all the more important for employers to follow best practices, not only to comply with the new law, but also to avoid costly litigation.
This complimentary 1-hour webinar is designed to provide information to in-house counsel, HR professionals and business owners about the potential financial and legal implications of the Fair Pay Act, as well as critical steps to avoid potential liability.
We will discuss:
- How the Fair Pay Act interacts with other state and federal laws, such as Title VII, FEHA, and the federal Equal Pay Act
- The requirements, definitions, burdens of proof, and damages available under the law
- The ambiguities under the law and tips for compliance in light of these ambiguities
- Special issues and concerns for particular employers
- Recent litigation initiated under the Fair Pay Act and what to expect if sued under the law, including evaluating the risk of class actions and representative actions under PAGA
- Best practices and strategies for compliance, with tips for small and large employers.
