Nearly a fifth of all U.S. workers are covered by some type of pay transparency laws. Some laws require employers to include salary ranges in job listings. Others require them to disclose a salary range after making a job offer, though some only make it mandatory if the applicant asks for a range. Analysts believe the trend toward pay transparency will continue.

As companies and organizations compete with one another to attract and retain talent, having ongoing open and honest conversations about determining compensation will benefit both the employee and employer. Remember, the salary negotiation process should never be an adversarial one: The employer wants you to be happy, but it is up to you to effectively articulate the things that will give you the greatest job and personal satisfaction.
