Closing the Compensation Gap: What You Need to Know About the Salary-History Ban
In an effort to close the pay gap between men and women, a growing number of states, counties and municipalities are enacting statutes and ordinances prohibiting governmental and/or private employers from asking about an applicant’s compensation history and basing comp negotiations and offers on that information. The idea is that removing salary history from hiring and compensation decisions will level the playing field between applicants and put a stop to practices that force women to carry their lower pay status from old to new jobs. How do these new regulations affect you and your company?
This 60-minute online training will provide you with the information you need to avoid violations in this ever-changing employment landscape. This fast paced, guidance-rich webinar will help you to discover:
- Why salary inquiry prohibition-type laws (“salary bans”) are being put in place
- How to identify which pay disparity and salary ban laws apply to your organization
- How to rewrite your application and retrain your staff to ask the right questions

In the live presentation I learned how to be an assertive communicator by using the right words, putting the subject line first and not feeling guilty when saying 'no.' There were so many excellent tips that I can implement to be a more effective, confident communicator. In the materials, I learned how to structure thought processes and use a 9 step approach to provide a crisp and clear core idea so that all stakeholders buy in at the end." – B. Pasceri
