In 2016, New York and Massachusetts enacted laws banning employers operating within their states from compelling job seekers to disclose their salary history. Since then, dozens of cities and states have enacted similar legislation. Now, corporations such as Amazon, Bank of America and Wells Fargo, to name a few, are following those laws to the letter across their organizations, regardless of jurisdiction, and forbidding their HR teams and outside recruiters from requesting compensation history.
