Albany County, New York the latest jurisdiction to enact salary history ban
Tags : Salary History Legislation
The law was signed on Nov. 6, 2017, and will go into effect 30 days after it is filed with the office of the New York secretary of state.
The new law will prohibit all employers and employment agencies in Albany County with four or more employees within the county from:
- screening “job applicants based on their wage, including benefits or other compensation or salary histories”;
- requesting or requiring as a condition of being interviewed or continued consideration “that a job applicant disclose prior wages or salary history;” or
- seeking “the salary history of any job applicant from any current or former employer.”
The law contains an exception that allows employers to request prior salary and benefits information from an applicant’s current or previous employers only after an offer of employment with compensation has been made to the applicant, and if the applicant provides written authorization.
