New Jersey Assembly Bill 1094 (AB1094) prohibits employers from asking about an applicant’s current or previous salary. The bill states that it is unlawful for any employer to:
If an applicant voluntarily discloses their salary without prompting or coercion, then the employer may consider and verify this information. Employers may also request that the applicant provide written authorization to confirm their salary history.
AB1094 creates some exemptions, such as applications for internal transfers or promotions, and penalties for violations.
