Signed by Governor Baker on August 1, 2016, the MAssachusetts Pay Equity Act ("MEPA") is scheduled to become effective on MAssachusets employers on July 1, 2018.  This new law amends Chapter 149, s. 105A of the Genearl Laws, which already prohibits discimination in the payment of wages on the basis of sex for "like or comparable" work."  Although federal and state law already prohibits disciminatory pay practices on the basis of sex/gender, MEPA clarifies certain definitions and includes additional restrictions and protections.  MEPA applies to nearly all employers in MAssachusetts, including private employers (regardless of size), and state and municpal employers (MEPA does not apply to the federal government).
