Michael Sciotti Quoted in Central New York Business Journal Article on New NYS Pay Transparency Law

Michael Sciotti, partner, is quoted in the Central New York Business Journal article “New Year Brings New Pay-Transparency Law, Minimum Wage.” The article explores some of the key changes in New York State’s labor laws, rules, and regulations as they pertain to employers. To address these changes, employers should make sure their employee handbook is up to date and includes anything new required under the law, Michael advised. 

New York State’s new pay-transparency law, signed by NYS Governor Hochul on December 21, 2022, requires employers to list the salary range for all advertised jobs and promotions. Michael said, “Employers will need time to get ready to implement the law practically, so they need to get right on it.” The law goes into effect on September 17, 2023. The law has several goals, including reducing discriminatory wage-setting and hiring practices, trying to close the pay gap, and allowing applicants to make an informed decisions about whether they want to apply for a job.

New York State’s minimum wage also increased. Employers must stay on top of their employees’ wages and salaries or potentially face monetary consequences, such as owing employees overtime pay.

Other topics addressed in this article include posting updated and correct workplace posters, an anti-retaliation provision, expanded requirements for expressing breast milk in the workplace, and COVID-19 leave policies.
