Murray’s Co-Sponsored Pay Equity Bill Passes Assembly

(April 27, 2015) Assemblyman Dean Murray (R,C,I-East Patchogue) today proudly joined his Assembly colleagues in passing his co-sponsored legislation enacting real pay equity, bolstering existing state and federal statutes. This bill, part of Murray’s multi-point women’s equality plan, would prohibit pay discrimination based on sex and would provide a pathway for victims of discrimination to recoup wages unjustly denied in the past.

“Over the past few years, there has been a lot of talk about pay equity and not enough action,” said Murray. “I’m proud to be a co-sponsor of this legislation and glad that today we passed this bill and took real steps to ensuring that no hardworking New Yorker is a victim of discrimination based on sex.”
