Update Applicable to: 
All employers in the state of New York

What happened?
On June 3, 2022, the New York State Legislature passed Senate Bill 9427A (the “NYS Bill”), which enacts a wage disclosure requirement for employers once signed by Governor Hochul.

What are the details? 
Effective 270 days after signage from Governor Hochul, the NYS Bill would impose a twofold requirement on employers, including employment agencies, employees acting on behalf of their employer, or agents of employers, for postings concerning jobs, promotions, or transfer opportunities (collectively, “employment opportunities”) that can or will be performed, at least in part, in New York State. 

The NYS Bill defines an “employer” as an entity employing four or more employees. The NYS Bill purports to apply to remote employment opportunities so long as the job can or will be performed at least in part in New York State.

Article 1 – Article 2

What do employers need to do?
Employers should review the links and adjust job postings once Governor Hochul has signed the bill.
