New York City now requires salary ranges in job posts. Here's which media companies are complying, and which aren't – Nieman Journalism Lab at Harvard

Starting Tuesday, New York City employers are required by law to include “a good faith salary range” for every job they post. (“Good faith” means “the salary range the employer honestly believes at the time they are listing the job advertisement that they are willing to pay the successful applicant(s).”
Ranges have to include a minimum and maximum — employers can’t say something like “$15/hour and up.” So some — cough, New York Post, cough — are finding wiggle room with useless ranges like “$15/hour to $125,000.” Some CNN positions included pay ranges of nearly $100,000.

We went searching through the job boards to find what media companies, both those based in New York City and those that have offices or some positions there, are paying — and whether they’re adhering to the, um, spirit of the law. (By the way, is it fair to expect companies to be complying already? Yes, they’ve had months to prepare and the rule was already delayed once.)
This list is up-to-date as of Friday, November 4 at 11:00 AM.

KEY ✔️ = Useful salary ranges provided for NYC jobs. 👎 = Technically complying, but ranges are dubious. ❌ = No salary information provided.
