Starting October 31, 2017, NYC Employers are not able to ask applicants about their salary history.
Takes Effect: October 31, 2017
This past May, NYC set forth legislation that will ban employers from asking an applicant about a job applicant's current or historical salary compensation.
This new law does not apply to (1) internal job applicants seeking a transfer or promotion with their current employer, or (2) public employee positions for which salary, benefits or other compensation are determined under a collective bargaining agreement.
