Equal Pay Act

Published:  May 11, 2018

The Massachusetts Equal Pay Act has been amended, and new provisions will begin on July 1, 2018. The amendments present several substantive changes to multiple definitions in the Equal Pay Act such as employer defenses, comparable work, statute of limitations, and salary history inquiries. The new provisions provide employers with safe harbor provisions if the employer takes affirmative steps within the previous three (3) years and prior to the filing of a lawsuit.

Attorney Timothy Netkovick discussed the new provisions, its impact on employers, and discuss how employers can take advantage of the safe harbor provisions.
