We’re reminding New York employers that the State’s ban on asking prospective employees about their salary history goes into effect on January 6, 2020. This means employers no longer are permitted to rely on a prospect’s salary history to determine his or her pay.

Employers who violate the new law can be liable for compensatory damages, injunctive relief, and attorneys’ fees.

Employers should act now to ensure their job applications and hiring practices are compliant. You can read about the new law in detail here.

If you’re an employer with questions about New York or federal employment laws, contact us. The attorneys at The Coppola Firm stand ready to assist.
