Hawaii Passes Pay Transparency Law


Effective January 1, 2024: Hawaii employers with a minimum of 50 employees must provide job listings with an hourly rate or salary range that reasonably reflects the anticipated compensation.

The disclosure requirement applies to new job listings but does not include internal transfers or promotions within the same employer. Additionally, it exempts public employee positions where collective bargaining determines salary, benefits, or other forms of compensation. Hawaii’s law does not explicitly define “expected compensation” and does not oblige the disclosure of other components of total compensation, such as benefits, as required by some state laws. The law also does not specify whether the 50-employee threshold pertains to nationwide or within the state.
