The New York City Council overwhelmingly voted last week to delay the effective date of its new pay transparency law by five months. Originally scheduled to become effective one week from Sunday, on May 15, the law will not now take effect until November 1. The ordinance requires employers with 4 or more employees to post a salary range for all job notices advertised, whether on the internet, in newspapers, on internal bulletin boards or anywhere else. The amendment, passed by a vote of 43-8, also exempts jobs that will not be performed within New York City and does not specify how big a salary range may be, presumably meaning that an employer can provide a wide range for any given position. Finally, first time violations may be cured before a monetary penalty is imposed, but that would constitute an admission of guilt by the employer.
