OLYMPIA, Wash. – Should employers post a salary range on job listings? 

It could become a requirement in Washington. 

If passed, Senate Bill 5761, introduced by Senator Emily Randall (D – Port Orchard) would require employers to disclose an hourly or salary compensation or a range of that compensation in all job listings. 

The bill suggests amending RCW 49.58.110, which currently says an employer must provide the minimum wage or salary upon offering the applicant a position. 

SB 5761 was introduced to the Senate Committee on Labor, Commerce and Tribal Affairs Monday morning.
