Following the lead of New York City, the New York legislature passed legislation this week mandating that employers post the range of compensation for any job, promotion or transfer opportunity. If signed by Governor Hochul as expected, S.9427 will apply to all employers which includes employment agents and recruiters, with four or more employees who will be performing work within the state of New York. The legislation, which includes some record-keeping requirements, dictates that applicants and employees be advised of the specific salary or at a minimum, a range of compensation, for any posted job, promotion or transfer opportunity that the employer “in good faith believes to be accurate at the time of posting.” It would become effective 270 days after it becomes law with the Governor’s signature and individuals claiming harm under its provisions would file a complaint with the Department of Labor Commissioner while employers would be subject to civil penalties.
