SF Chronicle: Supreme Court tosses California equal-pay case, saying ruling died with judge
The San Francisco Chronicle ran an article about the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to vacate a unanimous equal pay decision from last year out of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which banned employers from using an employee’s prior salary to justify pay discrepancies. Equal Rights Advocates led amici in oral argument last year.
Senior Counsel for Workplace Justice & Public Policy Jessica Stender, who presented oral argument to the en banc Ninth Circuit panel last year on behalf of amici, was quoted in the article.
Relying on prior salary allows pay discrimination to follow women and people of color from job to job, resulting in a lifetime of lost wages, less income for families, and higher rates of poverty.
