DER’s New Job Posting Policy
The DER Board recently reviewed its job posting policy and has made a change to better align with our goals to foster diversity, equity, and inclusion. Our new policy is in effect as of June 1, 2022.
The new policy will require that groups posting a job provide the salary information. Pay transparency has been shown to address gender and race salary inequities, increase candidate interest, and illustrates a commitment to the organization’s values. There is also a California legislature bill, CA SB 1162 – Pay Transparency for Pay Equity – that if enacted will require employers to have both internal transparency and public listing of salary ranges on job postings. You can see a summary here.
Here are some articles on the subject:
