Equal Pay Certificate of Compliance Report
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 they pay men and women the same rate for the same job. The Minnesota Department of Human Rights provides a biennial report summarizing its efforts.
