Washington’s Equal Pay Opportunity Act (EPOA) requires that employers must provide equal compensation to “similarly-employed” workers, except for some specific reasons unrelated to gender. Amendments made in 2022 mean that starting Jan. 1, 2023, employers with 15 or more employees will be required to include salary and benefits information in external and internal job postings.
A while back, we posted information about the pay transparency requirements on or website, and shared a great blog post from Catharine Morisset about what employers should do to prepare for the new law.
Catharine is a partner at Fisher Phillips law firm, which focuses on employment and labor law. We are fortunate to have her as an allied member and an active contributor to the association’s advisory network.
Catharine recently hosted a webinar on Washington’s new job posting requirements, which were adopted by the Legislature as amendments to the Equal Pay Opportunity Act. In case you missed it, head over to the members only site to get a full recap of Catharine’s presentation.
