Not unlike the trend we see relative to paid medical and sick leave across the country, the push for banning questions about a prospective employee’s salary history continues to ripple in different states and cities. Illinois legislators presented just such a ban to Governor Bruce Rauner back in August of this year, which the Governor vetoed. He asked that they pass more balanced legislation that would allow employers to get salary history information after a job is offered to an applicant. The legislature chose to pursue an override instead, but failed in the senate last week by a vote of 29 – 17. The final override tally is interesting in that the initial bill received 35 affirmative votes in the senate back in August. 36 votes were needed to pass the override.
