New York kicks off 2020 with a statewide salary history ban. Like other similar laws, the new regulation is intended to address wage differentials attributed to gender. Public and private employers alike are prohibited from asking applicants about prior salary history information (including compensation and benefits), or from seeking such information from other sources, verbally or in writing. Additionally, employers are prohibited from relying on salary history information as a factor in determining whether or not to interview a candidate, or what salary level to offer.
