California Senate Bill 1162 was signed into law in September of 2022 amending California Government Code section 12999 and California Labor Code section 432.3.
This new law expands pay data reporting and increases pay scale transparency. The new requirements have taken effect on January 1, 2023.
SB 1162 expands pay data reporting obligations for employers and exposes employers to potentially costly civil penalties for failure to comply.
The law extends reporting requirements to cover contractor employees and requires labor contractors to provide the necessary information to employees so they can meet their reporting obligations.
Employers must also disclose in the pay data report the names of all labor contractors used to supply employees.
