If you are being watched, leave now!


October 31, 2023

Building on our work with PowHer New York's Equal Pay Campaign to enact pay transparency laws in New York City and New York State, Legal Momentum has created this guidance, which draws from lessons learned in New York, including a review of compliance thus far and ongoing advocacy to strengthen existing legislation. This Guidance is intended to serve as a resource for state and federal policymakers and advocates working on legislation to mandate disclosure of pay ranges during the hiring process. To that end, the Guidance highlights the need for these laws, best practices for enacting legislation, and key considerations and components, to support the enactment of meaningful and effective pay transparency protections.
