Washington Beginning January 1, 2023, Washington will Require Employers to Disclose Salary Range and Wage Scale in Job Postings. Earlier this year, Washington Governor Jay Inslee signed into law Senate Bill (SB) 5761, which revises a 2019 amendment to Washington’s 2018 Equal Pay and Opportunities Act. SB 5761 applies to employers with 15+ employees, and does not specify that all of those employees must be in Washington State. Once in effect, SB 5761 requires employers to affirmatively disclose in each job posting open to applicants the salary range or wage scale to be offered, as well as a general description of all benefits and other compensation for the position. A job “posting” is defined as “any solicitation intended to recruit job applicants for a specific available position, including recruitment done directly by an employer or indirectly through a third party, and includes any postings done electronically, or with a printed hard copy, that includes qualifications for desired applicants.” The law does not appear to require job postings, but if a company chooses to post a job, the law would apply.
