A recent article by Karl Heideck, a lawyer practicing general law in Philadelphia, explains the rough time Philadelphia had, getting its new wage discrimination law into effect. In January of 2017, Philadelphia’s Mayor Jim Kenney signed a new law into practice; the New Salary History Law. The law prohibits employers from inquiring about a job applicant’s salary history. The law is aimed at closing the wage gap between men and women in Philadelphia.
Just before the law was to go into effect, it was challenged by the Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce, as unconstitutional. The law prohibits employers from using job candidate salary data with express permission. It prohibits an employer from asking a candidate directly about salary history.
Many believe that the law will affect companies outside of Philadelphia, as many do business with companies inside the city limits. The penalty for violating the law is $2000 per occurrence.
