Alert: BOLI Released Final Rules Oregon's Pay Equity Law

Updated: Dec 21, 2021

Enforcement Begins January 1, 2019

On November 19, 2018, the Bureau of Labor and Industry (BOLI) released the long-awaited final rules for Oregon’s Equal Pay Law, which BOLI will start enforcing beginning on January 1, 2019. The final rules have relatively few changes from the proposed rules published late this summer.

Employers are encouraged to take steps now to ensure compliance with the new law: audit and analyze each job in the organization; group “work of a comparable character”; identify discrepancies in compensation within each group; either justify discrepancies with bona fide reasons or adjust compensation to equalize salaries within groups; document justifications; update documentation with every raise, performance review, role and responsibility change, etc.
