As a reminder, New York State’s pay transparency law is scheduled to go into effect on September 17, 2023. As we have previously reported, the law will impose new pay transparency obligations on employers with more than four employees, including disclosure of minimum and maximum annual salary or hourly range in advertisements for covered jobs, promotions, or transfer opportunities, publication of existing job descriptions for such positions, and maintenance of compensation history records. Employers also are prohibited from retaliating against applicants and current employees for exercising their rights under the law. (For more detail, click HERE and HERE to review our prior e-Alerts on this topic.)
