Equal Pay Day Commences Nationwide on April 2nd

April 2nd, 2019

Tuesday, April 2 marks Equal Pay Day throughout the country and promotes the importance and need for the elimination of the gender wage gap. Both Pennsylvania and New Jersey have made strides to close the gap, but while some legislation has passed other proposals remain up in the air or failed to gain enough traction to be enacted. Last Thursday, the U.S. House passed the Paycheck Fairness Act, which will increase the difficulties of employers who may continue to permit gender wage gaps among their employees, but it still needs to pass the Senate.

In Pennsylvania, the Philadelphia City Council passed a bill in 2017 that bans employers from inquiring about the salary histories of potential employees although detractors of the bill still debate over whether it infringes on the employers’ rights to free speech. Both Pennsylvania and New Jersey engaged executive orders to stop the practice of gender wage gaps in government agencies. In 2018, New Jersey updated their equal pay laws to cover all types of employees, prohibit employers from requiring their staff to sign documents regarding the disclosure of compensation, and requesting compensation figures according to gender and race from public companies.
