NYC Pay Disclosure Rules Pushed to November

City lawmakers grant businesses some changes, deny others

People crossing a street in new york city at sunset.

​The requirement that New York City employers disclose salary ranges in job postings has been postponed until Nov. 1.

We've gathered articles on the news from SHRM Online and other outlets.

Employer Pushback

The City Council voted for the delay after business groups in the city lobbied against the law and its original May 15 implementation date.  

The delayed effective date represents a partial win for New York City employers, but most of their demands for amendments to the law were denied, including provisions that would have exempted companies with fewer than 15 employees and would have allowed businesses to post general "help wanted" listings, without a specific role and without salary information.


Some Remote Workers Exempt

In addition to pushing back the effective date, city lawmakers made tweaks to the law, including clarifying that remote positions that couldn't or wouldn't be performed in New York City at all would be exempt from the salary posting requirement.

Other modifications include allowing employers a warning and 30 days to fix a first violation before facing a penalty and a provision that only current employees of an organization can sue the employer for not listing salary ranges under the law.


NYC Requires Salary Ranges in Job Postings

The New York City Council passed the legislation Dec. 15, 2021. The bill amended the New York City Human Rights Law to require that employers disclose minimum and maximum salaries for all advertised jobs, promotions or transfer opportunities located in the city.

New York City employers can still withhold pay information until the end of the hiring process until the law takes effect.
