Westchester County and Salary History

On March 26, 2018, the County Board of Westchester County, New York passed a resolution making it an unlawful discriminatory practice for an employer to rely upon, request, or seek the wage history of a job applicant. Under the resolution, an employer may not:

  • Require an applicant to disclose his or her salary history as a prerequisite to an interview, as further consideration in the hiring process, or as a condition of employment.
  • Retaliate against any applicant who withholds his or her salary history, including refusing to hire the applicant.

The law is effective July 9, 2018.
