LVBH attorney Wendy Musell was interviewed for a recent article in The Register regarding a California bill which would require employers with 15 or more employees to include salary ranges on job listings.
The Register, a global online technology news publication, wrote about SB 1162, which aims to promote pay equity. The bill would also require companies’ pay data reports to include the median and mean hourly rates for each combination of race, ethnicity, and sex within each job category. Ms. Musell said that the bill “is a major step toward pay equality but also equal opportunity.”
“It will also allow employees in current positions to request the salary range for their position,” she added. The bill also requires an employer, upon request, to provide to an employee the pay scale for the position in which the employee is currently employed.
The bill has since been signed by Governor Gavin Newsom.
