If you live in New York City, all of that is about to change.
The law, which is expected to take effect in April 2022, will require all employers to post a salary range along with their job listings, Forbes reports.
In the wake of labor shortages and employees quitting their positions en masse in search of better, higher paying roles, this will make things so much easier.
According to Forbes, applicants generally have to interview with more than three people for up to six months, just for a single job.
Forbes writes, "Even in this hot, tight job market, the interview process usually entails enduring some rude behaviors, cancellations of interviews at the last moment, lack of feedback, getting ghosted and receiving a lowball offer."
Going through the exhausting interview process, only to be presented with an offer that doesn't meet your own salary expectations feels like a huge waste of time.
It may also mean that employers will have to reevaluate how much they're willing to pay their new hires.
According to JD Supra, there are similar laws regarding employees' right to know salary expectations in other states, including Washington State, California, and Connecticut.
Though the New York State Senate and Assembly are looking to enact a similar law that would be state-wide, rather than just local.
