I think this will provoke employers to inflate their quoted salary ranges by making them "OTE" (On Target Earnings) and then set those targets quite high.

Outside of sales very few jobs would have formal defined OTEs

If anybody in my industry started saying I need to be sitting certain business targets to get my full salary they’d be laughed out of every job interview.

Working for a division of a fortune 500 and our bonus are tied to OTE/DNE. Which was a large part of the salary according to the interview, bonuses drop 90%+ 2 years ago. Grossing 2k-3k a quarter bonus is now an annual net about $500 (taxes).

On top of that, they have shrunk the workforce by 25% over those 2 years to save money. Heard our building went from 300+ to around 130 people over last 10 years and we are hitting record sales numbers but not enough for bonuses.

We’ve had the law for almost a year now in Colorado and this isn’t what’s happened.

Exactly. Sure, there's a few companies that blatantly try to skirt the law. Others provide broad ranges. But plenty of companies have started including reasonable ranges in their job postings and that's already a huge improvement in transparency from where we were a while back. If NY and other states follow, at one point it will be easier for companies just to include the range in all of their job reqs.
