Salary-Range Requirements in Job Ads Spread Quickly Across US

At least nine cities and states are proposing new measures to disclose salary ranges in job listings

Bartenders at Hawaii’s beachside resorts and commodity traders in Chicago could soon get a better idea of what their colleagues and peers are earning as proposals to boost pay transparency multiply across the US. 

At least nine states and municipalities have introduced legislation to add new rules or bolster existing requirements to disclose good-faith salary ranges in job listings, and more are expected to follow, said Christine Hendrickson, the vice president of strategic initiatives at Syndio, which provides software that helps employers identify pay disparities.
