DFEH Issues New Guidance On California’s Pay Data Reporting Act
A few weeks ago CDF Labor Law blogged about California’s Pay Data Reporting Act, which requires private employers with 100 or more employees that also file an annual EEO-1 report with the EEOC to submit a “pay data report” to the California Department of Fair Employment & Housing (“DFEH”). As a follow-up, yesterday, the DFEH released new reference materials that provide guidance on how to prepare the pay data report, including a user guide, an excel template and a CSV example (plain text file). Employers that are subject to the reporting act must submit the requisite pay data report to the DFEH (by way of an online portal) by March 31 this year and every subsequent year. The portal will be operational by February 16. In addition, the DFEH maintains and updates a Frequently Asked Questions resource page that explains the substantive requirements of the act and how to satisfy them.
Links to the FAQs, user guide, portal, and the samples are here.
