New Jersey may be looking to join the growing number of states mandating salary transparency in job advertisements, aligning with the nationwide surge in wage transparency laws. Presently, both New York and Connecticut have enacted laws promoting pay transparency, while Jersey City, New Jersey implemented a local wage transparency law in April 2022. Despite this, a comprehensive statewide law is currently absent. However, this could soon change with the introduction of Assembly Bill 3937.
Under the proposed legislation:
- New Jersey businesses with 10 or more employees to disclose wage or salary details or provide a compensation range in their job postings.
- Employers must include a comprehensive description of all job benefits.
- Employers must make diligent efforts to announce promotion opportunities in both internal and external job postings.
If successful, this legislation would usher in a new era of transparency in job advertising across the state.
