On May 12, 2022, New York City Mayor Eric Adams will hold a hearing on New York City’s salary disclosure bill, Introduction Number 134-A. The bill, which the New York City Council passed on April 28, 2022, would revise Local Law 32, New York City’s previously enacted salary disclosure law. The bill contains important amendments for employers, including an amendment pushing back the law’s effective date from May 15, 2022, to November 1, 2022. In order to become law, the bill must be signed by Mayor Adams, who has thirty days from the day the bill was passed to consider the bill.
Ogletree Deakins’ New York office will continue to monitor developments with respect to the implementation of the law and its impact on the workplace and will post updates on the New York blog as additional information becomes available. Important information for employers is also available via the firm’s webinar and podcast programs.
