As pay transparency laws go into effect in New York City and California, as described in this CNN article, employers are trying to figure out precisely what that means for them to comply.

Who wouldn’t be interested to know that your organization plans to pay a new hire with the same title more than you currently make?

Other states have recently enacted similar laws, and I foresee that the trend is just starting. Stay tuned for additional news on pay transparency legislation as our workforce changes dramatically in the U.S.
