Employment Law This Week (Episode 92: Week of October 23, 2017) has released bonus footage of its interview with Ann Knuckles Mahoney, an Associate at Epstein Becker Green.

California Governor Jerry Brown has signed two new laws that impact the hiring process: (i) a “ban the box” law that restricts when employers can ask job applicants about criminal history, and (ii) a “salary history ban” that bars employers from asking job applicants about their salary history or using that information in setting compensation. Both laws align with nationwide trends, with states, cities, and counties all taking action. California’s salary history ban comes on the heels of New York City’s similar law, which takes effect on October 31. Ms. Mahoney compares California’s new law to New York City’s salary history inquiry law.
