NYC Issues Additional Guidance on Upcoming Salary Inquiry Prohibitions

    Effective October 31, 2017, New York City employers generally may not inquire about or rely upon a job applicant’s salary history in making employment decisions. The New York City Commission on Human Rights (NYCCHR) previously released an Employer Fact Sheet and a Job Applicant Fact Sheet to assist employers and employees with understanding the law.

    The NYCCHR has now added a "Salary History Law: Frequently Asked Questions" section to its website.  (See our article, NYC Enacts New Law Limiting Prospective Employers' Ability to Obtain and Use Salary History, for details of the law.)

    To read about the key highlights from the fact sheet for employers and the FAQs, please click here to read the post from Jackson Lewis attorneys Jonathan Bing, Rich Greenberg, Dan Jacobs, James Ansorge, and Brian DeShannon.
