Hawaii Enacts Pay Transparency and Expands Equal Pay

Effective January 1, 2024, Hawaii employers with 50 or more employees will be required to disclose in job listings an hourly rate or salary range that reasonably reflects the actual expected compensation for the role.

Hawaii also expanded its equal pay requirements by prohibiting an employer from paying employees in “any protected category” listed in Hawaii’s employment discrimination statute less than it pays other employees in the establishment for “substantially similar work”.
