Paycheck Fairness Act Fails to Advance in Senate

On June 11, 2021 the U.S. Senate failed to approve advancement of the latest iteration of the Paycheck Fairness Act.  In a procedural cloture vote that fell along party lines the Act fell short of receiving the required 60 votes needed to move forward.

As a reminder, the version of the Act proposed in February 2021 would have required OFCCP to implement a survey to collect compensation data and other employment-related data (including hiring, termination, and promotion data) among other requirements.

As of now there is no federal pay data collection requirement, but the EEOC continues its review of the topic as employers await the Agency’s decision on whether, and in what form, pay data collection may take in the future.  In the meantime, the states like California and Illinois are picking up the mantle and forging ahead.
