Q. My company is based in Philadelphia. We often set salaries for new employees based on the applicant’s wage history. Are we still permitted to do this?
A. Effective May 23, 2017, a new Philadelphia Ordinance makes it unlawful for employers in Philadelphia to inquire about a prospective employee’s wage history or require disclosure of wage history as a condition of employment. The law was passed to encourage employers to base salary offers on the job responsibilities of the position sought, rather than on the applicant’s prior wages.
