The City of Brotherly Love officially joins the list of governments prohibiting private employers from asking prospective job applicants about their salary history at the beginning of the month. The Philadelphia Wage Equity Ordinance becomes effective on September 1 after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit in February overturned a 2018 lower court ruling that struck down the ordinance on the grounds that it violated employers’ First Amendment rights. Despite fighting the city over the ordinance for over 3 years and filing its own short-lived lawsuit against the City over the ordinance, the Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce ultimately relented and worked with the city to develop a Frequently Asked Questions guide and finally supported the final regulatory parameters of the ordinance. The law will be enforced by the Philadelphia Commission on Human Rights.
