The bill also offers protections to workers hired from agencies
The newly introduced Senate Bill 1162 in California wants employers to disclose salary ranges for all job postings in a bid to close gender and racial wage gaps. The bill, introduced by Senator Monique Limón, also wants companies to publicly report pay data broken down by race, ethnicity, and sex for both direct employees and employees hired through an external staffing agency. This is a solution to the arising gap from the recently passed SB 973, which only requires employers to submit pay data reports to the Department of Fair Employment and Housing. It also does not include temporary, contract, and contingent workforce.
