Salary History Laws and Regulations

States and local governments around the country are enacting new laws and regulations which prohibit employers from requesting the salary history of job applicants.  The laws and regulations are aimed at ending pay discrimination and some prohibit employers from using salary history to set the compensation for that applicant.  However, both Michigan and Wisconsin have enacted laws which ban local governments from banning salary history.  Currently, there are salary history ban laws in 7 states and 8 municipalities.
