California Fair Pay Act

The California Fair Pay Act [CFPA], (SB 358), was signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown on October 6, 2015. The CFPA will strengthen the existing laws under the Equal Pay Act by eliminating loopholes that prevent enforcement and by empowering employees to pursue equal pay without fear of retaliation from their employer.

Some UAPD members have presented cases that fall under this protection and are seeking relief. UAPD fully supports and stands by any member pursuing equity and fairness. Currently, UAPD is working with members at several State and County facilities in Southern California.

Any member who feels that they may have been hired into an inappropriate classification or pay level, or unfairly compensated compared to others who are doing the same work, are urged to contact their representative to look into the issue further. UAPD does not support inequality in any form and we will help point any member in the right direction toward resolving inequity due to gender pay discrimination.

For a summary of the CFPA you can go to www.cela.org. If you have an issue, contact UAPD at 1-800-622-0909 and your representative will help.
