California’s gender pay gap: How two proposed laws aim to close it

July 25, 2017 | by

Senior Staff Attorney Jessica Stender spoke with CALmatters about two important California equal pay bills. AB 168 would prohibit employers from inquiring about applicants’ prior salary and AB 1209 would require employers to submit pay data by gender to the Secretary of State. ERA is a sponsor of AB 1209 and supports both bills as Chair of the Stronger California campaign for women’s economic security.
