On January 9, 2017, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed an Executive Order that requires state contractors to disclose, in addition to data on gender, race, and ethnicity that is already required, job title and salary data for all of their employees working on state contracts (or their entire workforce if those working on state contracts cannot be identified). The Order, “Ensuring Pay Equity By State Contractors,” compels state contractors to disclose this data for all state contracts, agreements, and procurements issued and executed on or after June 1, 2017. The Order requires that the information be reported to state agencies and authorities:

  • quarterly for all prime contracts over $25,000; and
  • monthly for all prime construction contracts over $100,000.

Subcontractors working on New York state contracts must also provide the same information for their employees.

We will continue to monitor developments that impact government contractors and pay equity.
