California Pay and Workforce Reporting Portal to Open February 16

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff

A 2020 law in California requires private employers with over 100 employees to report certain pay and workforce data to the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) by March 31, 2021, and annually thereafter. The Pay Reporting Portal will open for submissions beginning February 16. DFEH has also published a Portal User Guide and reporting template to assist employers with their filings.

Under the new law, employers must report to DFEH pay and hours-worked data by establishment, job category, gender, race and ethnicity. The new measure is designed to motivate employers to consider pay inequities along gender, racial and ethnic lines within their own workforce and promote compliance with existing anti-discrimination laws.
