Over 50 Employees and Working on a State Contract?

Effective January 1, 2016: Pay Equity Compliance Certificate Requirement

Senate Bill 491 established the requirement for the bidder or proposer to comply with the pay equity provisions of state law for state agency procurements.


If you are an employer with 50 or more full-time employees and you intend to bid or propose on any state agency contracts that may be valued at $500,000 or more, you will be required to complete the DAS online training and submit a completed certificate of compliance with your bid or proposal.
