The New York City Council has voted to postpone the enforcement of a new law which would have seen businesses with four or more employees in the city, including architecture firms, of including salary ranges in job advertisements. The law, which was set to take effect from May 15th, will now take effect on November 1st.

The law was originally passed in January, with the goal of closing the gender and race pay gap through encouraging more transparent salary information. However, heavy lobbying by business groups including JPMorgan Chase and Goldman Sachs saw the implementation delayed by six months. Lobbyists also sought to exempt companies with fewer than 15 employees from the disclosure, up from the original bill’s threshold of four employees or fewer. However, this amendment was unsuccessful.
