Attorneys that defend workers’ rights are highly appreciated in Philadelphia because of brotherly love. Most employers are always interested in knowing the salary history of their new employees but this is no longer possible in Philadelphia because of the new policy. Philadelphia is the first city in the United States history to prohibit employers in the private sector from accessing the remunerations history of job applicants. There were many ordinances that made it hard for this request to be granted. The chamber of Commerce for Greater Philadelphia had strongly opposed the new policy that was later signed into law January 23, 2017.
According to hackronym.com, the new policy prohibits private sector employers from; victimizing job applicants that refuse to reveal their salary histories, ordering applicants to disclose their previous salaries, and accessing the salary data of a job applicant without their consent. The new law will also affect employers that conduct business in the city but are not based within the city. However, its implementation continues to face a lot of challenges, and this has led to many legal disputes in Philadelphia.
