CURIOUS HOW YOUR WAGES RANK WITH EVERYONE ELSE?

With some impeding bills like AB 168 being considered into law (which is the prohibition of asking salary history when hiring employees), it may be an excellent idea for your organization to participate in the industry tailored 2017 Wage and Benefit Survey. Instead of having to worry about past salary history or questions that you cannot ask, you can rely on the information published to guide your wage and benefit practices.

Don’t wait, get your questionnaire done and submitted so it’s ready for your eyes only in October at no additional cost. If you don’t submit the survey, be ready to part with $250 for a copy.

Questions, contact Cheryl Chong, 323.728.9500 Ext. 218.
