Explanation

The bill prohibits employers from asking about a prospective employee's wage and salary history under certain circumstances. This does not result in any fiscal impact to the state or municipalities.

House “A” alters the original bill by adjusting the exceptions to the prohibition on requesting wage and salary history, and by eliminating: 1) the provisions allowing an employer to limit its damages from alleged violations, and 2) the provision pertaining to seniority systems in certain gender wage discrimination lawsuits.
