In April, Hire Image reported that Maryland passed a salary history ban prohibiting employers from seeking pay history from job applicants. That law goes in effect today, October 1st.
Under the law, employers may, however, confirm wage history voluntarily provided by an applicant after an initial offer of employment. They also must provide an applicant the wage range of the position for which the applicant applied, if requested.
Maryland employers should review their hiring practices and job applications to ensure they are in compliance with the new law.
