California Pay-Disclosure Practices Draw Scrutiny from Regulators
Labor, Employment and Benefits attorney Samuel Stone was interviewed for an SHRM article about California's new pay range requirements for job postings. Under these pay transparency requirements, which took effect at the beginning of this year, companies with 15 or more employees must include a pay range in job ads, no matter whether they're posted by the company or by a third-party staffing agency. State regulators have been taking a closer look at job postings, and violators can face hefty penalties in addition to civil actions. Mr. Stone commented on the importance of carefully reviewing job postings for compliance with the new regulations.
"There needs to be real, concerted thought and some careful planning as to what information is going to be put out there," he said.
