Complimentary Breakfast Briefing~The Amended CA Fair Pay Act The Next Wage/Hour Class Action Threat

Program: 7:30am - 4:00pm
Location: San Bernardino DoubleTree

The passage of the amendments to the California Fair Pay Act (CFPA), effective January 1, 2016, sent a clear message: the burden is on employers to close the gender wage gap and to explain any pay disparity or risk costly class-action lawsuits and investigations.

Learn how the amendments have made it easier for employees to raise pay discrimination claims. We will discuss the following changes:

  • A lower bar to prove violations.
  • Burden shifts to employers to affirmatively demonstrate that the pay differential is based on specified factors.
  • Extends the period of time employers are required to maintain wage and other employment records.
  • Forbids employers from prohibiting employees from engaging in certain activity related to their wages.
  • Prohibits retaliation and creates a private right of action for retaliation claims.
  • New plans from the EEOC to report equal pay data.

Join us to discuss the implications of these amendments, a look into the next class action threat and receive practical practice tips to prepare and defend against Fair Pay Act claims. 

 Attendance is complimentary.
