As Mr. Stein discusses, a new amendment to California’s “Fair Pay Act” has toughened the state’s existing equal pay law. The old law prohibited gender-based pay differentials for employees doing equal work in the same establishment. The law now requires equal pay for male and female employees who do “similar work” under “similar working conditions.” This means that the law may no longer take into account varying cost of living in different areas of the state.
