California Pay Data Reporting Update
Summary: The California pay data reporting requirement is getting updated. Is Oracle developing an update to the delivered report to account for this?
Content: Existing law in California requires employers with 100 or more employees to annually report pay data on each of 10 specified job categories to the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH). This report is calculated from a “snapshot” of a single pay period of the employer’s choice between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31.
Beginning in May 2023, SB 1162 expands these DFEH reporting requirements. For each job category, employers must include the median and mean hourly rate, broken down by race, ethnicity and s e x. This is a material change from existing law, which only requires numerical counts of employees by race, ethnicity and s e x within each job category’s pay band.
