California Pay Data Reporting


By Jennifer Jacobus, PHRca, SDEA Director of HR Services

Just a reminder that California employers with 100 or more employees must file their pay data by May 31, 2023. 

The California CRD recently issued new FAQs addresses the most significant changes that include:

  1. All employers with 100 or more employees, at least one of whom is located in California, must annually submit a Pay Data Report, and may not submit a federal EEO-1 Report in lieu of a Pay Data Report.
  2. Employers with 100 or more employees hired through labor contractors (i.e., staffing agencies) must submit a separate Pay Data Report to the CRD.
  3. These pay data reports are now required to include median and mean hourly pay rates for each combination of race, ethnicity, and sex within each job category.
  4. There are new civil penalties for failure to file required reports ($100 or $200 per employee).
  5. The deadline for submission is the second Wednesday in May. For the 2022 reporting year, reports are due on May 10, 2023.

This will be a significant change for many employers, especially since those with experience filing the federal EEO-1 Report, may not use the same report.
