salary history ban

NYSPAC supported Gender Pay Gap legislation for the 18/19 Advocacy Year. Commonly referred to as the Salary History Ban, this legislation would prevent an employer from asking a potential employee to provide an accounting of their previous salary histories to determine their offer of pay. The common practice of asking for a salary history, perpetuates discrimination against women, who historically have earned less than their white male counterparts throughout their careers. This bill passed at the end of the 2019 legislative session

We recently supported the Children’s Victim Act, which passed on Monday, January 28th in the New York State Legislature.
