In an effort to promote pay equity for women and minorities, several states and cities have enacted laws that ban employers from asking job candidates for current and previous salary information. In the past, it was customary for employers to ask for salary history information during the hiring process and then use that information to set wages for positions. This practice has resulted in substantial pay inequality between men and women in the workplace. The intent of salary history bans is to rectify the widening pay gap.
