Over the past few years, a number of states have been debating whether employers should be allowed to ask potential employees to disclose their salary histories. Several states have already decided the answer is “no,” prohibiting businesses from asking candidates what they made at their last jobs. As a result of the recent U.S. midterm elections, in which voters in a number of states replaced Republican legislators with Democrats, several more jurisdictions may soon pass equivalent laws. To help employers make sense of current legislation and prepare for what may lie ahead, Offit Kurman has developed this map, offering a state-by-state breakdown of where salary history laws have changed and where they might shift next.
