Shedding Light On Conn.'s Pay Secrecy Law

Law360, New York (July 30, 2015, 10:36 AM EDT) -- On July 2, 2015, Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy signed into law Public Act No. 15-196, "An Act Concerning Pay Equity and Fairness." The law was originally introduced by Gov. Malloy and is designed to narrow the wage gap between men and women in Connecticut's workforce by halting "pay secrecy," a practice the Connecticut Legislature identified as "hinder[ing] pay discrimination from being pinpointed." The law encourages wage transparency by permitting employees to voluntarily discuss their wages with other employees and/or with third parties. The law became effective on the date it was signed by the governor.
