Connecticut made a change to its statutes to prevent employers from requesting a prospective employee’s wage and salary history.
The change adds a new item five of Section 31-40z of the Connecticut General Statutes. Effective January 1, 2019, employers are no longer permitted to inquire, or direct a third party to inquire, into a prospective employee’s wage and salary history, unless the prospective employee voluntarily discloses such information. Employers may still inquire about other elements of a prospective employee’s compensation structure, but not the value of the elements of compensation structure.
The changes can be found here.
