On Tuesday, September 27, 2022, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed SB 1162 into law. In addition to new pay data reporting requirements beginning May 2023, SB 1162 amends California Labor Code Section 432.3 to require the following beginning January 1, 2023:
We expect to receive additional guidance on SB 1162, including (1) if the new pay scale disclosure requirements only apply to employers with 15 or more employees based in California, (2) how it applies to California employers seeking applicants for work outside of California, and (3) how it applies to non-California based employers seeking applicants within California. For now, all employers with employees in California should review their “pay scales,” and review any “third parties” that are utilized to recruit applicants to work in California. As additional guidance becomes available, we will report on it.
