In the past we reported about the restrictions placed on employers from asking job applicants for salary history. We are again reminding you that employers must know the laws in each and every jurisdiction where they do business, where their applicants and employees reside, and even where they are interviewed.
Salary history bans attempt to end pay discrimination. Different jurisdictions have outlawed pay history questions in one form or another. There have been 11 state-wide bans and 9 local bans. It’s the law and we want to help you avoid the penalties. Below is a list of the jurisdictions with a salary history ban.
|SALARY HISTORY BAN||EMPLOYERS AFFECTED|
|NEW YORK –|
|NEW YORK CITY||●||●|
This development continues to follow the trend of the pay-equity movement taking place in cities and states nationwide. As we’ve suggested in the past, because there is a new national focus on prior salary history information, employers should be mindful of these new restrictions and evaluate how new legislation may impact them. For additional information, please contact NCS.
