As we previously posted, New York City will require that any advertisements for jobs that can be performed within the City identify the minimum and maximum salary for that job. This requirement was set to become effective on May 15th, but an amendment to the law has pushed its effective date back to November 1, 2022.
In addition to delaying the effective date, the amendment makes several other changes to the law. Notably, the amendment narrows the private right of action, which previously broadly applied to applicants and current employees, to only current employees. The amendment also provides employers with a 30-day period to cure violations of the law after receiving a complaint from the New York City Commission on Human Rights, and avoid civil penalties.
Employers posting job advertisements for position in New York City should note the new effective date of the law and prepare to have their job postings comply with its requirements as of the effective date.
