Key U.S. states move to eliminate wage discrimination

World Today


The wage transparency law passed in New York city in November. It came after a six-month delay due to initial pushback from some members of the local business community. 

According to the New York city Commission on Human Rights, the mandate requires New York city employers with four or more employees to post a “good faith salary range for every job, promotion, and transfer opportunity” they advertise. 

Colorado was the first to adopt such a law in 2019. Connecticut, Maryland and Nevada have enacted similar legislation. While at the start of 2023 pay transparency laws are set to take effect in California, Rhode Island and Washington state.
