As part of efforts to ensure pay equality, many states and localities across the United States have passed laws that prohibit employers from inquiring about an applicant’s salary history at various stages of the hiring process. As a result, employers may need to revise their employment applications and the questions they ask during the interview process. While some employers became subject to these laws in 2017, several more laws are set to take effect in 2018. We have highlighted these laws below.
Even if these laws do not currently impact your employment practices, employers should continue to monitor state and local legislation, as this legislation trend is likely to continue to spread to other municipalities and states.
