This brief compiles recent research on the impact of equal pay laws and policies on the gender wage gap. It presents studies under five topic areas: (1) salary history bans; (2) pay transparency policies; (3) gender and salary negotiations; (4) gender bias in performance management and performance-related pay; and (5) occupational segregation and gender, racial, and ethnic wage gaps.

A collaboration between Equal Pay Today! and IWPR, this resource aims to equip advocates, researchers, and policymakers with recent, relevant data on equal pay laws and policies.
