October 12, 2015

Governor Jerry Brown signed Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson’s California Fair Pay Act (SB 358) into law this Wednesday.

SB 358, which takes effect in January, prohibits California employers from paying employees at wages lower than those who do substantially similar work, with the intention of ensuring equal pay for women doing the same work as men. The bill received bipartisan support, passing in the Senate without opposition.
