Advocacy Update:

The Bureau of Oregon Labor & Industries released their concluding rules for employers and employees on Oregon’s groundbreaking Equal Pay Act, passed by the 2017 Oregon legislature. The new law that goes into effect on January 1, 2019, requires that employees be paid equally for comparable work regardless of gender or any of Oregon’s ten other protected classes.

Guide for Oregon’s Equal Pay Act

Effective January 1, 2019, Oregon’s groundbreaking Equal Pay Act requires that employees be paid equally for comparable work regardless of gender or any of Oregon’s ten other protected classes.

We believe this will be the most challenging human resources issue for most of our Chamber members over the next year.

The Pay Equity Guide, which you can view here, provides helpful information to comply with the new law. The guidance includes an overview of the law, frequently asked questions, a guide for employers on self-evaluations, a sample checklist of policies and practices, and a calculation tool created to assist employers in determining where they have potential wage gaps between employees.

We hope you will find that this tool provides great value to your members.
