This bill amends the "Law Against Discrimination," P.L.1945, c.169 (C.10:5-1 et seq.), to strengthen protections against employment discrimination and thereby promote equal pay for women by prohibiting any employer from: 1. Seeking the wage or salary history of a prospective employee; 2. Requiring, as a condition of employment, that an employee disclose information about either the employee's own wages, including benefits or other compensation, or about any other employee's wages; 3. Requiring that a prospective employee's prior wage or salary history meet any minimum or maximum criteria as a condition of being interviewed, or as a condition of continuing to be considered for an offer of employment; or 4. Taking retaliatory action against an employee or prospective employee based upon prior wage or salary history or because the employee or prospective employee has opposed any act or practice made unlawful by the bill. The bill is not intended to prohibit a prospective employee from voluntarily disclosing wage or salary history information, except that the bill prohibits an employer from coercing the prospective employee to disclose information about the employee's wage or salary history. The bill provides that an employer may only confirm, or permit the prospective employee to confirm, the wage or salary history information after making an offer of employment to the prospective employee.
