This session will address changes in the law regarding what can cannot be discussed during the recruitment process.

Money talks, but the conversation is about to change. In late 2017, 2018, and beyond, certain states and cities are set to implement salary secrecy laws. Employers in these regions will no longer be able to ask candidates, "What did you earn in your last position?"

Not my state, not my problem…

Not so fast. While only a few states and locations are implementing salary history laws, eliminating the salary history question from your interview practices and training is a good habit to start considering now. It’s a growing trend for both states and cities. With large potential consequences, and even larger potential benefits, it’s best to change your policies and practices now in preparation.

The best recourse: stop asking the question.

But why this new rule? Why now? The answer: gender equality. We’ll break down the specifics for each location affected by salary history laws, and what exactly this question has to do with income inequality and gender.
