New Jersey bans salary history inquiries for state employees
Tags : Salary History Legislation
The executive order – issued new governor Phil Murphy’s first day in office – will prohibit New Jersey agencies and offices from asking applicants for their compensation history or investigating their prior salaries.
The law will go into effect on Feb. 1. A full copy of the executive order can be found here.
Additionally, the governor urged the state legislature to send legislation to his desk banning the practice for all employers statewide.
The move follows the growing trend of state and local governments enacting prohibitions on salary history inquiries. Employers should continue to remain proactive in keeping up-to-date with this legislative trend to ensure their hiring practices remain compliant.
