Beginning this Sunday, September 17, 2023, NYS employers with four or more employees are required to list salary ranges for open positions in advertisements, postings, or listings. This includes internal postings for promotions and internal hiring.
The range should show the minimum and maximum annual salary or hourly rates that the employer believes in good faith to be accurate at the time of posting.
Employers theoretically can, and in fact some already have, post a very wide salary range as a way to leave themselves "wiggle room," and so far that has not been challenged in court as being in bad faith. However, the Department of Labor and the state will likely issue further clarifications in the coming months.
