On August 1, 2016, Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker made news across the Commonwealth (and the country) when he signed into law the Massachusetts Pay Equity Law. The new law, which goes into effect on July 1, 2018, is meant to eliminate the wage gap between men and woman, strengthen the state’s existing equal pay law and impose certain new obligations and limitations on employers. It is amount the toughest equal pay laws in the country. Employers should take advantage of the time before July 1 to understand the requirements of the law and consider compliance strategies.
