The California Civil Rights Department has Released New Guidance for Employers Required to Report Workforce Data

California law requires private employers with 100 or more employees and/or 100 or more workers hired through labor contractors to annually report pay, demographic, and other workforce data to the Civil Rights Department (CRD). This year, the pay data reporting portal opened on February 1, 2024, and employers have until May 8, 2024 to submit their annual reports. To aid employers, the CRD released updated FAQs as well as new versions of the pay data reporting Excel templates, a user guide, and training slides. The FAQS are available here.

It is important for employers to comply with their reporting requirement; failure to do so permits the CRD to obtain a monetary penalty. Employers are encouraged to consult with their Weintraub Tobin employment attorney should they have any questions.
