MARCH MCLE: A Deep Dive Into California's New Fair Pay Act -- Key Issues, What to Expect, How to Prepare

Speakers: Rich Paul, Michael Sullivan, Joanne Alnajjar Buser & Curtis Cotton - QUALCOMM

Overview

California's Fair Pay Act, one of the toughest equal pay laws in the country, took effect on January 1, 2016. In this session, we will examine the details of the new law, and explore some of the big unknowns: What does "substantially similar work" mean and how is it different from "equal work?" How will comparing employees in different locations work and where does cost of living fit in? Can you use past salary as a basis for setting compensation? What is a "bona fide business factor?" We will also look at steps employers can take to minimize potential claims and liability under this new law.
