California Governor Jerry Brown recently signed the California Fair Pay Act (FPA) (SB 358) into law in an attempt to close the state’s gender wage gap by imposing more stringent standards than those under the long-standing California Equal Pay Act.

Effective January 1, 2016, the FPA prohibits an employer from paying any employee a lower wage than that paid to employees of the opposite sex for substantially similar work and places the burden on employers to prove that any pay gap between workers is due to nondiscriminatory factors.

  • California's existing Equal Pay Laws
  • The new California FPA, its impact on employment litigation and requirements such as:

  • Women and negotiating pay
