California Equal Pay Laws

California’s Equal Pay Act has been in effect for decades and has been strengthened even more in recent years by various new laws and amendments occurring in 2015, 2016, and 2017.

Under these new laws and amendments, the following now apply in the state:

  • Employers can no longer pay lesser wages based on gender, race, or ethnicity to employees who perform substantially similar work under similar conditions (which takes into consideration skill level, effort, and responsibility, as well as the fact that jobs being compared do not have to be at the same company).
  • Workers who bring claims of unequal pay violations based on these laws are now expressly protected against retaliatory measures by employers.
  • Employers are not allowed to stop workers from talking about or inquiring about their own or others’ wages.
  • Employers cannot ask employees about their previous salaries, try to discover what they were through other sources, or use that information in their decision-making process in regards to job and salary offers.

In order to bring a successful claim against an employer for unequal pay, you must prove that you have been paid less for similar work. Your employer will have to prove that the pay difference is not based on discrimination but on valid factors, such as seniority, production level (which is measured in some quantifiable way), education, training, experience, or some other factor other than sex, race, or ethnicity.
