The New York City Council may consider a bill to amend a recent law that requires employers to include a range of salaries on job listings. The Civil and Human Rights Committee, chaired by Council member Nantasha Williams (D-Queens), will hold a hearing on the bill on April 5. GNYHA will submit testimony that will describe our concerns that the law may harm some hospitals’ and community-based organizations’ ability to hire critical staff, particularly during a statewide staffing shortage. GNYHA will suggest further amendments, such as exempting not-for-profit or health care employers from the law’s requirements so that important safety net institutions can continue to hire necessary staff and provide high-quality patient care.
