Microsoft to Begin Disclosing Pay for All Jobs

Microsoft will start publicly listing the pay ranges for all jobs advertised at the tech giant in the United States, it said Thursday.

“Today we’re announcing another best practice with our commitment to publicly disclose salary ranges in all of our internal and external job postings across the US, beginning no later than January 2023,” the company said in a blog post.

Microsoft had already prohibited its interviewers from asking applicants their salary history several years ago, as well as reporting annually on its equal pay data since 2014.

Expanding on this pay transparency was part of four employee environment changes unveiled by Microsoft on Thursday. The other three are removing non-competition clauses from its US employee agreements, and not enforcing existing non-compete clauses from today (except for its senior leadership team); removing confidentiality language prohibiting Microsoft workers from disclosing alleged discrimination, harassment, retaliation, sexual assault or wage and hour violations; and conducting a civil rights audit on the business.
