Collecting and Publishing Data on Gender Pay Differentials

Assembly Bill 1209 (Gonzalez Fletcher) requires most employers with 250 or more employees to collect gender pay differential information on exempt employees and board members. The legislation follows up on last year’s SB 358 that amended California’s Equal Pay Act. This new information would have to be published by employers on a public website by July 1, 2020, and updated by July 1 each year thereafter. The California Chamber of Commerce is leading a coalition opposed to the legislation. A major problem with the bill is that it relies on job titles and classifications for comparisons, undermining the current law that focuses on “substantially similar” positions based on actual duties. Current law recognizes that objective, non-discriminatory reasons exist for wage differentials, including education, seniority, geographical differences, and productions levels.
