Thank you to all of you who visited Albany, made phone calls, and sent emails to rally New York State Assembly and Senate legislators. We made a difference in the fight to help close the wage gaps for ALL women!
After more than a decade long Equal Pay Campaign, four critical pay equity bills passed both the Senate and the Assembly in 2019!
We applaud the passage of these bills:
Equal pay for substantially similar work for all protected categories | S.5248 Biaggi / A.8093 McMahon
Salary history ban for job applicants | S. 6549 Carlucci/ A.5308 Crespo
We await the governor’s signature on these bills:
For public sector employees: Equal pay for substantially similar work | S.6436 Montgomery/ A.7748 Rosenthal
For public sector employees: Private right of action | S.456A Benjamin / A. 1047B Simotas
