Senior Economic Empowerment Attorney, Seher Khawaja, was quoted in The City's coverage of the new amendment to change NYC's salary transparency law just weeks before it goes into effect. The new amendment would change key aspects of the law, like excluding businesses with fewer than 15 employees and exempting remote positions, changes that would effectively gut the law.


“While the amendments are being sold as innocuous tweaks, when you read them closely they would essentially undo much of [the new law],” said Seher Khawaja, senior counsel for Legal Momentum, a national advocacy group for girls and women. “We think it would really undermine the impact of the law by excluding a large sector of New York’s workforce from the protections.”
