Starting November 1, most New York City employers must list the salary range on all posted job ads, promotions and transfer opportunities. This new law makes NYC the largest municipality in the U.S. to enforce pay transparency for both external and internal job advertisements.
Know Your Rights: Transgendered People
Under New York City law, transgendered people are also protected against workplace discrimination. The law states that no one can be discriminated against on the basis of gender, where gender is “a person’s gender identity, self-image, appearance, behavior or expression, whether or not that gender identity, self-image, appearance, behavior or expression is different from that traditionally associated with the legal sex assigned to that person at birth.” In New York City, transgendered people are entitled to the same workplace rights as everyone else. More and more, laws are being passed to protect transgendered people across the country. Click here for a state-by-state map detailing anti-discrimination policies.
