SB 171, authored by Hannah-Beth Jackson (D-Santa Barbara), would impose Federal EEO-1 pay data reporting requirements to California employers at the state level.

If passed, SB 171 would require private California businesses with more than 100 employees to “submit a pay data report to the Department of Fair Employment and Housing that contains specified wage information.” This would be required on or before March 31, 2021 and on or before March 31 each year afterward.

The “Disclosure of Pay Equity Data” bill, recently passed in senate, and pending assignment to assembly committee, would require such businesses to sort their employees into 10 job classifications and submit a report outlining each employee’s race, sex and ethnicity in each category. This would be applicable to all businesses who are required to file an annual federal Employer Information Report.

Follow the bill’s progress.
