Massachusetts Pay Equity Law: Is Your Nonprofit Ready?
Presenter: Hillary Massey, Seyfarth Shaw LLP
On August 1, Governor Baker signed a bipartisan pay equity bill, passed unanimously by both legislative branches, to ensure equal pay for comparable work for all Massachusetts workers and equal opportunities to earn competitive salaries in the workplace. The new law, going into effect on July 1, 2018, will prevent pay discrimination for comparable work based on gender. It also allows employees to freely discuss their salaries with coworkers and prohibits employers from requiring applicants to provide their salary history before receiving a formal job offer.
Come and learn more about this new law and what your nonprofit as an employer can do and can no longer do. The law will affect your existing pay scheme, employee handbook, hiring process manual and related policies. Employment law expert Hilary Massey of Seyfarth Shaw will lead this 90-minute seminar.
