Assembly Bill 168

On October 12, 2017, Governor Brown signed into law Assembly Bill 168 (AB 168), which prohibits employers from inquiring into an applicant's salary history, effective January 1, 2018. The legislation is intended to address inequity in pay practices based on gender, race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, age, protected veteran status, gender identity, or sexual orientation. Given the University's institutional values and commitment to ensuring equal pay, the University is taking steps to align our practices with the provisions in this new law.
