Connecticut’s Salary History Inquiry Prohibition Effective As Of January 1, 2019
A reminder to Connecticut employers: generally speaking, questions about an applicant’s salary history are prohibited as of January 1, 2019. As I detailed in an earlier post, Connecticut has joined the growing number of states restricting what employers may ask applicants about salary history. While salary history inquiries are now generally prohibited, there are two important exceptions that are discussed in my earlier blog post.
I encourage Connecticut employers to review employment applications for compliance with this new law. Also, employers must make hiring managers aware of impermissible interview inquiries.
