• New York City’s Salary History Law and Employer Compliance
  • November 10, 2017
  • On May 4, 2017, Mayor Bill DiBlasio signed a bill amending the New York City Human Rights Law to prohibit New York City employers from inquiring into a prospective employee’s salary history during the hiring process or relying on the salary history of an applicant in determining salary, benefits or other compensation for such applicant during the hiring process, including the negotiation of a contract. The New York City Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) will be enforcing this new provision.
