SAN FRANCISCO, CA — San Francisco has been the most recent city to ban a series of interview questions that involve the applicant’s job history. Companies are no longer allowed to ask about the previous pay history of the applicant. Other cities, states, and territories have adopted similar rules including, New York City, Philadelphia, Delaware, Puerto Rico, Oregon, and Massachusetts. Such questions were carefully scrutinized and determined that they can put women and minorities at a disadvantage.
Overall, reaction to this ruling has put applicants at ease and the majority agree that it evens the playing field for all those applying for the job or seeking higher wages at a new company. This may ultimately reduce gender and minority pay gaps.
