Cambridge Trust company (OTCQB: CATC) plans to be an early adopter of the Massachusetts equal pay law, as part of the City of Cambridge's Early Adopters Initiative, the company said.

The Act to Establish Pay Equity is Massachusetts's new pay equity law that goes into effect July 1, 2018.

Businesses participating in Cambridge's Early Adopters Initiative pledge their commitment to close the gender wage gap by embracing the provisions of the new Massachusetts law prior to it taking effect in 2018.

The bill allows employees to freely discuss their salaries with coworkers, prohibits employers from requiring applicants to provide their salary history before receiving a formal job offer, and authorizes the Attorney General to issue regulations interpreting and applying the expanded law.
