As we’ve advised over recent months, under the banner of pay equity, many more cities and states have begun prohibiting employment questions about an applicant’s salary history and that ripple continues. Most recently, the state of Delaware has joined the list of those banning any salary history questions! But now comes California, which long ago prohibited an employer from asking about salary history. Legislators there are considering legislation that in some ways presents the flip side of that coin – and adds more challenges to the hiring employer. AB 168 would mandate that any prospective employer upon request must provide a job applicant with the pay scale for the position for which the applicant is applying. Certainly not earth-shattering, but if it passes – the employer can’t ask, but must tell!!
