On September 30, 2020, California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed SB 973, which imposes new pay reporting requirements on certain employers. The bill takes effect on January 1, 2021, with the first report due by March 31, 2021. 

These new reporting requirements aim to reduce gender and racial pay gaps. According to the legislature, this collection of pay data will permit the state to “more efficiently identify wage patterns and allow for targeted enforcement of equal pay or discrimination laws.” 

What Does California’s Annual Pay Data Report Require?

This new law requires private employers with 100 employees or more who are required to file an annual EEO-1 report under federal law to submit an annual report to the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH). The first report is due on March 31, 2021, and annually thereafter. Each report submitted by March 31 covers the prior calendar year.
