Pay transparency is sweeping across the nation, and it is a labor movement that no one can ignore. According to Claro Analytics, the ratio of new publicly posted jobs with salary data has already increased from 27% to 36% over the last year. It is becoming a crucial element to create a great candidate experience and attract the best talent in today’s market. If you don’t comply, you could lose your current employees and be subject to thousands of dollars in fines depending on where you are hiring.

In this webinar hosted on December 7, 2022, we discussed what Talent Acquisition leaders need to know to stay ahead of the new laws, how you can leverage pay transparency in your recruiting process, and how it is building a more equitable salary standard regardless of location, gender, or race.

Key topics

  • What is SB-1162 and similar pay transparency laws and what are the implications for hiring teams?
  • What operational changes should teams make to adjust to these new laws?
  • What are ways to leverage these laws as a competitive advantage in the recruiting market?

Key takeaways

  • Perform a pay equity audit sooner than later. Work with your Head of HR, an attorney, or a role expert to ensure you have established a reasonable rate for your positions, and there aren’t any discrepancies.
  • Don’t stop at a salary. Include additional information about your benefits and bonuses in your job description. Celebrate that you are a transparent company and use it as a differentiating factor for attracting talent.
  • Reconsider your location-based pay policies. Either get rid of them or establish a system for geography-based pay before posting salaries.
