These American companies are posting what job postings pay

As more states and cities require pay scales with job listings, pressure grows for companies to provide the information with all open positions in the United States, not just where the law l ‘required.

Some companies have been early adopters: Airbnb Inc. already publishes the information with all of its publications, and Microsoft Corp. pledged to start next year when it becomes law in his home state of Washington. But as the number of cities and states passing pay transparency laws increases, more employers are adopting the practice.

Currently, Colorado, Washington, California, and New York City have all passed pay transparency regulations. The New York State Legislature also passed a similar law that, if signed by the governor, will take effect 270 days later.

Additionally, Connecticut, Nevada, and Maryland have regulations requiring that salary information be shared with job applicants upon request, with Rhode Island soon to follow.

The ultimate goal of these laws is to help historically underpaid and underrepresented groups — such as women and people of color — have a better chance of getting fair compensation. Armed with data, they can enter the hiring process with an idea of ​​what they could earn, rather than having to negotiate blindly.

The National pay gap for women in the United States has stagnated at around 83 cents on the dollar for women. For some minority groups, it’s much worse, according to the US Census Bureau and the US Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Most companies say they meet the requirements of laws in all hiring jurisdictions, but refrain from disclosing compensation nationally. For workplaces that market themselves as fair and progressive, reluctance to share salary data can alienate employees and job seekers, said Tauseef Rahman, a partner at consultancy Mercer who has studied the evolution of the salary transparency.

“There is a risk of hypocrisy,” he said. “A company that brags about its pay equity but only meets the bare minimum on job posting transparency sends a mixed message: ‘You’re talking big game on X, but you’re mute on Y. Why? that ?’ ”
