New York City Approves Pay History Ban

In April, the New York City Council approved legislation that will ban employers from requesting or using job applicants' salary history when making hiring decisions.

Introduction 1253-A is similar to those bans in Massachusetts and the City of Philadelphia, along with 20 other city and state legislatures that have introduced provisions.

It is intended to address gender-based wage disparities by eliminating the potential for discrimination based on previous salary.
