New York City employers must list salary ranges in job postings starting in April 2022

Employers in New York City will be required to include salary ranges for any advertised job, promotion or transfer opportunity under a law passed by the New York City Council. 

Under the regulation, passed by the council Dec. 15, employers are required to disclose a salary range "from the lowest to the highest salary the employer in good faith believes at the time of the posting it would pay for the advertised job, promotion or transfer opportunity" on all job advertisements for positions in New York City. 

The bill gives the New York City Commission on Human Rights authority to issue rules and regulations to implement and enforce the law. The commission is expected to clarify whether the salary range requirement applies to all jobs advertised in New York City or only postings for jobs physically located in New York City, according to Lexology.

Failure to include a salary range would be considered a discriminatory practice under the New York City Human Rights Law. The posting requirement will not apply to temporary positions listed by temporary staffing firms.

The requirement will take effect in April 2022 if not vetoed by Mayor Bill DeBlasio or Mayor-elect Eric Adams by January 14, 2022.
