CRA Legal Center Webinar with Fisher Phillips: Equal Pay Reporting in California

The CRA Legal Center and partner firm, Fisher Phillips, present this half-hour webinar to help restaurateurs understand the Equal Pay Reporting in California (and Why All Employers Nationwide Need to Pay Attention).

A new Pay Data Reporting law took effect in March 2021, that will have a ripple effect on many companies with employees in the Golden State. In a continuing effort to reduce gender and racial pay gaps and after years of a back-and-forth struggle at the federal level between the Obama and Trump Administrations over employer pay data reporting, California has adopted its own requirement with the enactment of SB 973. Effective March 31, 2021, private employers with 100 or more employees will be required to submit to the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) an annual pay data report broken down by race, ethnicity, and sex.

The requirement generally tracks the “Component 2” EEO-1 pay data reporting that was proposed by the Obama Administration and only briefly implemented by the federal EEOC. However, there are many unanswered questions about this new law, including how it may impact employers with employees located outside of California. Attendees will review how employers can audit and analyze pay data to ensure compliance with this statute and state and federal equal pay laws and learn the tools needed to comply with this new requirement.
