What a New Equal Pay Law in Massachusetts Could Do for Everyone, Not Just Women

8.4.16

The article, “What a New Equal Pay Law in Massachusetts Could Do for Everyone, Not Just Women,” featured in The Washington Post, highlights a new bill, signed into law by Gov. Charlie Baker, requiring men and women to be paid equally for comparable work in Massachusetts.

Amber Elias weighed in on the new law.

Of course, it's important to note that the new law does not prevent people from volunteering their salary history. And as written, the law doesn't appear to keep employers from asking candidates about a desired salary range.  While it may limit the discussion, "it doesn’t make salary a taboo subject," said Amber. Many employers who want to know what it will take to hire someone "will find other ways to get the information they're looking for."
