Equal Pay

MDHR Equal Pay Certificate of Compliance Report

Introduction

Since 1969, the Minnesota Human Rights Act has protected women from being paid less than men absent a legitimate, non-discriminatory reason. In 2014, Governor Mark Dayton signed into law the Women's Economic Security Act (WESA). The WESA legislation, in part, amended the Minnesota Human Rights Act to require certain contractors to obtain an equal pay certificate
Since then, Minnesota Department of Human Rights has monitored the state's contractors to ensure women are paid equally according to the law. The Minnesota Department of Human Rights provides a biennial report summarizing its efforts to ensure state contractors provide equal pay to their female employees, consistent with Minn. Stat. §363A.44
