Resources

In recent years, California has taken critical steps to close this gap by passing the strongest pay equity law in the nation, the California Fair Pay Act (SB 358 – Jackson), and launching a statewide Pay Equity Task Force, led by the CCSWG. As a result, comprehensive resources, guidelines, and best practices are now available to assist employees and employers to better understand their rights and responsibilities under the law and how to move the needle in closing the pay gap.
