Employers face tricky problems when interviewing and hiring candidates. It is often not easy to comply with the law, and something that can trip HR and hiring managers up most is what you can and cannot ask during the job interview. However, this issue has been further complicated by recent state laws that now prohibit employers from asking candidates about their past salary

Please join Melissa Fleischer for a comprehensive review over the recent rules regarding questions related to salary history. Learn why such laws were passed as well as which states have such laws. Understand what is prohibited and what information you can still ask from each candidate. Learn the differences between these laws and gain a better understanding of laws that are on the horizon and may be enacted soon regarding this issue in your jurisdiction.
