On April 5, 2017, one day after Equal Pay Day, the New York City (NYC) Council approved legislation to ban employers from requesting or using job applicants’ salary when making hiring decisions. The law prohibits any NYC employer from asking about an applicant’s salary history or searching any publicly available records to obtain such information during the hiring process.  Employers also would be prohibited from relying on an applicant’s salary history when determining salary absent an applicant’s voluntary disclosure.  Click here for more detail on the NYC pay history ban.
