Employment Lawyers Brace for Fair Pay Act

"Employment Lawyers Brace for Fair Pay Act"

Farella Braun + Martel employment law partner Douglas Dexter provided commentary on the impact of California's Fair Pay Act on employers.  According to the article, Mr. Dexter said he'll advise clients to be hypervigilant about recordkeeping in the wake of the Fair Pay Act. There are a host of reasons why one employee might be hired at a lower salary than another, including the market, the outcome of salary negotiations, or competitive offers from other companies. Employers should document every reason, as well as every factor that led to raises down the line. 

"Right now," he said, "I think what people are saying is we need to think about how to be proactive so that we're in a defensible position if we are faced with litigation."
