On March 4, 2022, NWLC joined the California Employment Lawyers Association, Equal Rights Advocates, and 15 additional organizations in an amicus brief submitted to the California Court of Appeal in support of the correct interpretation of the California Equal Pay Act (CA EPA) in Allen v. Staples, Inc. The brief urges reversal of summary judgment and for the Court of Appeal to correct and clarify the standards that apply to claims brought under the CA EPA, emphasizing that the law only requires plaintiffs to present a single male comparator to establish a prima facie case and that the McDonnell-Douglas test’s intent requirement does not apply to CA EPA claims.
