CALIFORNIA BAN ON SALARY & BENEFIT HISTORY INQUIRIES
CALIFORNIA PROHIBITS EMPLOYERS FROM SALARY AND BENEFIT HISTORY INQUIRIES DURING THE HIRING PROCESS

On October 12, 2017, Governor Jerry Brown signed the California Labor Code Section 432.3 into law. Effective January 1, 2018, California employers are prohibited from asking job applicants about their current or previous salary or benefit histories. The prohibition applies to the entire interview process, including the job application.

Job applicants may voluntarily disclose information on their salary and benefit history, without being prompted to. However, in accordance with the California Equal Pay Act, that information may not be used to determine the pay scale offered.

Additionally, Employers are required to provide the job applicants with the pay scale for the desired position, once requested.
