Salary History Inquiries Now Prohibited in Philadelphia

Employers who do business in Philadelphia, take note! It is now illegal to ask job candidates in Philadelphia about their salary history. This means you cannot ask an applicant about his salary at his current job or past jobs. Many employers routinely seek this information from job seekers to help them determine what salary to offer the candidate. Opponents of this practice say it perpetuates a cycle of lower pay for women and minorities. Philadelphia follows Massachusetts in banning salary inquiries; last year Massachusetts became the first state to pass such a law.

The Philadelphia ban will become effective May 23, 2017.
