Hawaii rang in the new year by joining eight other states with active pay transparency laws: California, Colorado, Connecticut, Maryland, Nevada, New York, Rhode Island and Washington.

Hawaii’s Senate Bill 1057 mandates employers with 50 or more employees to disclose hourly rates or salary ranges in job listings reflecting expected compensation. As in other states, certain job listings are exempt from the requirement, including those for public employee positions and those for which compensation is determined under collective bargaining.
