On July 2, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy signed into law Public Act No. 15-196, titled "An Act Concerning Pay Equity and Fairness" (the "Act"). The Act was originally introduced by Gov. Malloy and was designed to narrow the wage gap between men and women in Connecticut's workforce by halting "pay secrecy" – a practice the Connecticut Legislature identified as "hinder[ing] pay discrimination from being pinpointed." The Act encourages wage transparency by permitting employees to voluntarily discuss their wages with other employees and/or with third parties. The Act is effective on the date it was signed by the Governor.
