This course will provide a helpful overview of New York’s Salary History Ban Law, effective as of January 6, 2020. From coast to coast, asking about wage or salary history already seems like a thing of the past. Over the last few years, New York and other jurisdictions across the country have passed legislation that prohibits employers from inquiring about wage history information from job applicants. In this program, Lisa Savadjian of Seyfarth Shaw LLP will dive into the New York law, legal implications of non-compliance, and describe the practical considerations that New York employers are considering in this new frontier. By the end of the program, attorneys will have gained a broad overview of the Salary History law and will be armed with the knowledge to effectively and efficiently counsel their clients.
