California Approves Senate Bill 1162 to Require Disclosure of Salary Ranges on Job Listings

In September 2022, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed a package of legislation designed to advance gender equity that included Senate Bill 1162 (SB 1162), which “requires the disclosure of salary ranges on job listings and expands pay data reporting requirements,” according to a press release about SB 1162 on Governor Newsom’s website.

Introduced by California State Senator Monique Limόn (Democrat-District 19-Santa Barbara) in February 2022, SB 1162 “requires employers to make salary ranges for positions available to applicants and employees and expands pay data reporting requirements to better identify gender and race-based pay disparities,” according to the press release.

SB 1162 requires employers to make pay scale information available to employees and included in job postings. Building on a measure the Governor signed in 2020 to identify patterns of wage disparities through mandated statewide pay data reporting, SB 1162 expands state pay data reporting requirements, which include employee sex, race, and ethnicity information.

“California has the strongest equal pay laws in the nation, but we’re not letting up on our work to ensure all women in our state are paid their due and treated equally in all spheres of life,” Governor Newsom stated in the press release. “I thank the Legislative Women’s Caucus for their leadership and partnership in building a more equitable California for all.”
