Connecticut Senate Approves Bill Requiring Disclosure of Salary Ranges for Vacant Positions

  • Connecticut Senate approves measure requiring employers to disclose salary ranges for vacant positions
  • Measure was previously approved in Connecticut House of Representatives
  • New provision also outlines how employees can demonstrate sex-based discrimination if they are receiving lower compensation than the opposite sex for comparable work

Summary by Dirk Langeveld

The Connecticut General Assembly has approved a bill requiring employers to disclose salary ranges for vacant positions and implement “comparable pay for comparable work” after the Connecticut Senate voted in favor of the measure.

The Senate voted 20-14 to approve the bill and send it to Governor Ned Lamont. The Connecticut House of Representatives previously approved the measure in a 99-48 vote.

The bill, applicable to employers with at least one employee, includes the following provisions:

  • Employers must provide employee with wage range of position person is applying for, either at their request, before compensation offer made, upon hiring, or upon a change in their position within company
  • A salary range must be provided at least once a year, or at employee’s request
  • Employees can demonstrate sex-based discrimination if they’re receiving lower compensation for comparable work conducted by employees of the opposite sex, with the comparison being made based on a composite of skill, effort, responsibility, and geographic location

Connecticut law already bars employers from forbidding workers to disclose or inquire about their own compensation or that of their co-workers. Employers also may not inquire about prospective employees’ compensation and salary history.
