As Hire Image previously reported, effective November 6, 2022, Westchester County employers are prohibited from advertising “a job, promotion, or transfer opportunity without also including the minimum or maximum salary for the job, promotion to transfer in the job posting or advertisement.” The Westchester County law is also similar to New York City’s law, defining the range as “the lowest to highest salary the employer in good faith believes at the time of the posting it would pay” for the position.
The pay transparency law specifically applies to positions that are required to be performed, in whole or in part, in Westchester County, whether in person, in the field, or remotely.

Westchester County employers should review their job postings to ensure compliance with this new law before the effective date early next week.
