“Our new law shines a light on pay inequality,” Helen Rosenthal, a former City Council member and sponsor of the bill, told CNN in a statement. “Including salary ranges in job postings allows job seekers to determine whether they will be able to support themselves and their families when applying for jobs.”
Not posting the minimum and maximum wages would be considered an “unlawful discriminatory practice” under the city’s human rights law and could result in a fine of up to $125,000.
Beverly Neufeld, president of Pohr New York – a nonprofit focusing on economic equality for women that works with Rosenthal on the legislation – called it a “concrete step in eliminating the causes of pay inequality”. .
The wage-limit law passed in the city council last month with a 41 to 7 vote. Mayor Eric Adams had until midnight on Friday to veto the bill to stop the bill from becoming law.
Republican council member Joe Borelli, the minority leader, voted against the bill, calling it “unnecessary interference” in contract negotiations.
