New York City postponed enforcement of salary transparency until November after advocates and business leaders clashed on whether pay disclosure is the best way to close a persistent gender gap.

The City Council, which voted  for the delay on Thursday, also exempted companies from being charged a monetary fine for the  
first violation, and limited lawsuits related to the pay information to current employees.
