States are leading the legal charge on the pay equity front. We are tracking the states’ ongoing legislative efforts to enhance pay equity protections, and have categorized the existing laws to help employers navigate their pay equity obligations. A number of states have recently enacted significant overhauls to pay equity legislation markedly increasing statutory protections. Many states have incorporated some elements of major pay equity protections, such as statutorily changing what constitutes a “comparator group” or increasing statutes of limitations and available claims and remedies. Finally, others have enacted legislation with minor modifications to existing pay equity protections.
