Client Alert: Amendment to the New York City Human Rights Law

Beginning May 15, New York City will require all employers within NYC with four or more employees to post the minimum and maximum salary range for a posted position. The New York City Human Rights Law has been amended, making it a discriminatory practice to fail to post the salary range for the position. Specifically, the range may “extend from the lowest to the highest salary the employer in good faith believes at the time of the posting it would pay for the job advertised.” The amendment does not apply to advertisements for a temporary position at a temporary employment firm. However, anyone working as an independent contractor furthering their employer’s business is counted as an individual employed by that employer. While the amendment leaves some questions unanswered such as whether the law applies to jobs advertised in NYC, but are not physically located in NYC and what effect the law has on fully remote positions that can be performed anywhere, the New York City Commission on Human Rights is expected to provide clarification.  We will update you as we learn more from the Commission.
