How Pay Transparency and Equal Pay, and Proposed Amendments and Recent Developments to the Hawaii Civil Rights Commission, will Impact Employers

On Tuesday, August 22, John Knorek will offer Hawaii Employers Council members an informational webinar about preparing for 2024 — what the recent new law on pay transparency and equal pay, and proposed Rule amendments for the Hawaii Civil Rights Commission, mean for employers.

  • Act 203 (effective 1/1/2024) requires certain job listings to include an hourly rate or salary range, and requires equal pay for substantially similar work.
  • The Hawaii Civil Rights Commission is proposing amendments to its current rules, HAWAII ADMINISTRATIVE RULES, TITLE 12, CHAPTER 46.

Spend the time now to understand the impact to employers; so you can make plans for what may need to be changed in your processes and procedures and be ready for 2024.
