Ban employers asking job applicants for salary history and current earnings
According to the Young Women's Trust, 40% of HR Managers have said they do not advertise salary details with job adverts. Often this means the salary will be based on the new employee's previous salary. We want questions about salary history banned, as it can perpetuate existing gender pay gaps.
Ending this practice is easy to implement and more importantly, it works. The United States leads on this front. Many states have already banned this practice. A study has shown a 5-6% increase in pay for people moving jobs within these states, with a larger increase for women (8-9%) and African-Americans (13-16%).
