Salary History Bans Continue to Gain Momentum Across the Country
Lexology (09/11/19) Ariel Cohen

States and cities continue to implement prohibitions on employer salary history inquiries. In Alabama, the Clarke-Figures Equal Pay Act took effect on Sept. 1. Illinois' amended Equal Pay Act will go into effect on Sept. 29. In New Jersey, an amendment to the state's Law Against Discrimination takes effect Jan. 1, 2020. New York's Salary History Bill, which broadens the state's Equal Pay Act, goes into effect on Jan. 6, 2020.

At the city level, employers with six or more employees in Kansas City, MO, will be prohibited from asking applicants about their salary history, starting Oct. 31. In Toledo, OH, a salary history law that applies to employers that employ 15 or more employees within the city takes effect July 4, 2020. Employers in these locations should review and update their hiring practices and job applications to comply with these new laws.
