Employment Law This Week (April 4, 2016) has released bonus footage of its interview with Ian Carleton Schaefer, a Member of the Firm at Epstein Becker Green.

As Mr. Schaefer discusses, the trend toward equal pay regulation continues, with new legislation in New York and New Jersey. The New York City Council has voted again to broaden the New York City Human Rights Law, amending it to state that any exceptions should be construed narrowly. Among other protections, the law prohibits paying an employee less money based on gender. And following similar laws in California and New York, the New Jersey Senate recently passed legislation that would make it illegal for an employer to pay men and women different salaries for substantially similar work.
