New York State’s pay transparency law becomes effective on Sept. 17, 2023. Labor Law § 194-b requires employers to disclose salary and wage ranges for advertised jobs and promotions.

The law applies to employers with four or more employees and covers jobs that will be physically performed, at least in part, in New York State, as well as remote-work positions that report to a supervisor in New York.

The law requires employers to include the minimum and maximum annual salary or hourly range of compensation in any advertisement. Additionally, the law requires employers to post a job description if one exists.
