Salary Disclosure Laws

New York City:
Effective November 1, 2022, all employers that have four or more employees are required to post minimum and maximum annual salary or hourly wage for positions in job listings. This law applies to positions that can or will be performed, in whole or in part, in New York City. Nationwide employers hiring for remote positions are also likely to be required to post a salary range in their job advertisements because it is possible to perform the position in New York City.

Washington State:
Starting January 1, 2023, employers with 15 or more employees are required to include salary range and benefit information in their job postings.

Ten other jurisdictions have passed wage disclosure requirements and are likely to follow suit with respect to job postings.
