HRW Client Alert: Massachusetts Passes Pay Equity Act

By Arielle B. Kristan   August 12, 2016

On August 1, 2016, Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker made news across the Commonwealth and around the country when he signed into law An Act to Establish Pay Equity (the “Pay Equity Act”), which strengthens the state’s existing equal pay law and imposes certain new obligations and limitations on employers. 

This Client Alert provides an overview of the key provisions of the new law.  Employers should take advantage of the time before the Pay Equity Act goes into effect on July 1, 2018 to understand the requirements of the law and consider compliance strategies. For more information, click here to download a copy of our full alert.
