Client Advisory – Massachusetts Passes Comprehensive Pay Equity Legislation

This comprehensive pay equity legislation establishes a definition of comparable work, promotes salary transparency, prohibits employers from seeking salary history from prospective employees, and encourages companies to conduct equal pay audits.

Gesmer Updegrove’s Joe Laferrera and Elisa Filman have prepared a Client Advisory that provides an introduction to the law, outlines the ways in which employment policies and practices must change to comply with its new requirements, and explains how businesses can benefit from certain protections and defenses built into it. The Advisory can be viewed here as a downloadable PDF.
