What Small Businesses Need To Know About California’s New Pay Transparency Law

On January 1st, California's new pay transparency law came into effect. The law requires employers with at least 15 workers to include pay ranges in job postings. 

Employees can now also ask what the pay range for their position is, and larger companies must provide more detailed pay data for California's civil rights department than previously required. So, how will this law impact small businesses in California and other states?

This week, Sommer and Joey discuss everything small businesses should know about the new pay transparency laws in California:
