Attorney General Maura Healey's Office has released guidance for employers and employees on An Act to Establish Pay Equity, Chapter 177 of the Acts of 2016. The new law that goes into effect on July 1, 2018 requires that employees be paid equally for comparable work regardless of gender. The guide, which you can view here, provides helpful information for employers as they prepare to comply with the new law.
As the leading business organization for professional women in the Boston region, we were proud to play an important role in passing the comprehensive pay equity bill in 2016. The legislation was a result of thoughtful collaboration between lawmakers and Attorney General Maura Healey’s office, and a process that included the Chamber and our members.
To help employers and employees better understand new requirements under the law, the Chamber will be hosting an informational discussion with representatives from the Attorney General’s Office to provide an overview of key information employers and employees need to know for compliance and answer questions.
