The Massachusetts Pay Equity law goes into effect on July 1, 2018. The law intends to prohibit pay inequity by gender for “comparable work.” The Pay Equity law broadens and strengthens the protections afforded under current law by changing the analysis from “equal pay for equal work” to equal pay for “comparable work.” Additionally, employers may not restrict or forbid discussion of salary among employees.
