It’s important for employers to keep up with laws regarding hiring practices. In recent years, more states and municipalities have enacted laws that protect the rights of people seeking employment.
Currently, more places are enacting laws that prohibit employers from asking job applicants to reveal their prior salary, benefits, and compensation information. Twenty-one states have laws in place, along with 22 municipalities.
The law also prohibits employers from refusing to hire someone who won’t reveal that information.
