City Takes Major Step Toward Achieving Pay Equity

May 8, 2017

Goodbye to unlawful and discriminatory practices of employers inquiring about a job applicants salary history to determine their salary amount during the hiring process.

Unemployment claimants will be happy to know that with the new bill, Intro. 1253, which expands upon Executive Order 21, new hires are no longer limited by their salary history. In addition, it will open the dialogue to fair market salary negotiations between the employer and job applicants.  This is a move towards obtaining equal pay for equal work thus minimizing pay disparity in the workplace.
