New Hawaii Pay Transparency Law Takes Effect January 1st

Beginning January 1, 2024, under Act 203, Hawaii employers with 50 or more employees are required to disclose an hourly rate or salary range for external job listings (except public positions subject to collective bargaining). The law prohibits an employer from discriminating against employees in any protected category established under state law, by paying wages to employees at a rate less than the rate paid to other employees for substantially similar work. See Act 203, which amends Chapter 378 of the Hawaii Revised Statutes, in its entirety here.
