Employers Now Required to Post Salary/Hourly Rate Range in Ads


A law that took effect Monday in New York changes how most employers advertise.

The pay transparency law requires an employer with four or more employees to include the minimum and maximum salary or hourly range in any job advertisements.  Employers must also clearly state whether or not a position is commission-based.

“With the implementation of our pay transparency law, New York is once again at the cutting edge of promoting fairness and equity in the workplace,” Governor Hochul said. “Wage disparities have deepened inequality in our state for far too long and put countless workers – particularly women and people of color – at a disadvantage. I was proud to sign this legislation to help level the playing field across our state, and I will continue to work with the Legislature on solutions to support, protect, and empower workers until we finally close the wage gap in New York.”

Proposed regulations for the law were published on September 13 by the state. The public has 60 days to comment on the regulations which were published in the State Register.

The New York State Department of Labor has also issued a fact and Q&A sheet for employers.
