American Express Co. is joining the small but growing number of companies choosing to post salary ranges with job listings across the US, even where doing so isn’t required by law.

The credit-card giant has pay included in postings for positions in New York City, ahead of a requirement that goes into effect Tuesday for all companies with four or more employees. Legislatures in California, Washington and New York have passed new rules that would require inclusion of a reasonable pay range with help-wanted ads in those states. A law in Colorado, which set the precedent, took effect last year.
