Maybe this is the year women get paid fairly in California?

Under the state’s Fair Pay Act, which aims to close the wage gap between men and women, employers will have to be able to prove they pay both genders equally for “substantially similar” work.

The rules have spurred employers​to reassess the way they pay and classify workers. Some are puzzling over what “similar” means in legal terms, such as whether a marketing manager and a supply-chain manager have roughly equivalent jobs. Others are conducting complex audits of their payrolls, seeking to uncover any disparities.

The law makes it easier for workers to challenge the fairness of their pay and also nudges employers to fix pay issues before complaints arise. Those who violate the law could be on the hook for back wages and interest, plus an equal amount in additional damages. According to data cited in the legislation, women in California earn an average 84 cents for every dollar earned by men. http://www.wsj.com/article_email/for-bosses-in-california-a-tough-new-fair-pay-law-1451429688-lMyQjAxMTE1NDM3MDAzMTAyWj
