  • Today Governor Jerry Brown signed the California Fair Pay Act, SB 358, which gives California the most expansive equal pay protections in the nation. While the federal Equal Pay Act of 1963 and California Labor Code already prohibit gender-based wage discrimination, SB 358 amends Labor Code Section 1197.5 to place additional burdens on employers to show that gender-based wage discrimination has not occurred.
