Effective October 1, 2021, Connecticut employers must provide a wage range to applicants for the position they applied to, when they request it or before they are offered compensation, whichever is earlier. In addition, a wage range must also be provided to employees when they are hired, change their position, or when they first request their wage range.
In September 2021, the Connecticut Department of Labor released Questions and Answers Regarding Public Act 21-30 – “An Act Concerning the Disclosure of Salary Range for a Vacant Position, (FAQs) to assist employers with complying with the new law.
Next Steps for Employers
Employers are encouraged to review the state’s FAQs for additional information on the law and details on how to implement and incorporate these requirements into their recruitment and internal hiring practices.
