Certain Job Listings to Require Hourly Rate or Salary Range

SB1057 SD2 HD2 CD1 Relating to Employment Earnings was among the bills passed by the 2023 Hawaii State Legislature. The bill, now awaiting the governor’s signature, will amend Chapter 378, Hawaii Revised Statutes, effective January 1, 2024, to require certain job listings to include an hourly rate or salary range. Prohibits an employer from discriminating between employees because of any protected category established under state law, by paying wages to employees in an establishment at a rate less than the rate at which the employer pays wages to other employees in the establishment for substantially similar work. The new law will not apply to job listings for: positions that are internal transfers or promotions; public employee positions which are subject to collective bargaining; or positions with employers having fewer than 50 employees.
