California Pay Data Requirement

The law took effect on January 1, 2021 and first reports are due March 31, 2021 and then annually on March 31 thereafter and is modeled after the Component 2 bill by EEOC.

Who must submit?

California employers with 100 or more employees.  California-based employees and non-California based employees will count towards this 100 employee threshold. If the employer has at least 100 employees during the data snapshot or regularly employs 100 employees throughout the year, they will be required to file under this new law. In addition, even if there are part time employees who make up part of the workforce, employers are still required to file if they have 100 employees within their payroll.

What must be submitted?

  • Information about the number of employees in each EEO-1 Category by sex, race, and ethnicity and W2 wages (box 5) for each of these employees.
  • Hours worked during the reporting year for each of these employees
  • Data around all California employees and employees who report to a California establishment.
