New York City Employers Will Need to Include Salary Ranges in Job Advertisements


The new pay transparency law will become effective on May 15, 2022

Employers with at least four employees, including independent contractors, in New York City must include in any advertisement for an open position, promotion, or transfer opportunity the minimum and maximum salary for the position in the advertisement.  This requirement passes to employment agencies or their agents.  Exempted from the law are temporary positions advertised by temporary staffing firms.

The salary range may include the lowest and highest salaries that the employer believes in “good faith” that they will be paying for the job, promotion or transfer at the time of the posting.  

The New York City Commission on Human Rights is required to implement the law and set civil penalties for non-compliance.
