New York City Salary Law Guidance and Proposed Amendment

March 31, 2022

On March 22, 2022, the New York City Commission on Human Rights (“NYCCHR”) released a fact sheet providing guidance on the NYC salary transparency law, which is currently set to take effect on May 15, 2022. As we wrote about here, the salary transparency law requires NYC employers to include minimum and maximum salary information in job postings for any positions located within New York City.

The guidance explains that the law applies to all employers with four or more employees or at least one domestic worker. The guidance clarifies that the four employees do not all need to work in the same location and do not all need to work in New York City, provided that at least one employee works in New York City. Employment agencies are also covered by the new law, regardless of their size.

This alert will further explain the guidance issued by the NYCCHR and analyze the discrepancies between the guidance and the New York City Council's proposed amendment. To continue reading our alert, please click here.
