Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:
 

Chapter 149 of the General Laws is hereby amended by inserting after section 105D the following section:-

Section 105E. (a) As used in this section, the following words shall have the following meanings: -

“pay scale” a salary or hourly wage range for such position.

“reasonable request” means a request made by an applicant for employment in such position upon an invitation to be interviewed or anytime thereafter during the hiring process, or a request made by an employee regarding said employee’s current position.

(b) An employer shall provide the pay scale for a particular employment position with said employer to an applicant for employment in such position or an employee holding such position upon a reasonable request made by said applicant or employee. This section shall apply only to employers that are covered employers under the federal Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993, as amended, 29 U.S.C. 2601, et seq.

This section shall be enforced in the same manner as subsection (b) of chapter 149, Section 105A.
