NYC Council has now banned employers from asking how much you made in your previous job during interviews. Hopefully this should dissuade employers from taking advantage of talent.

Is this public information? My employer should not be telling people what I make.

What are you supposed to say when asked what your current/latest salary is? Do you just respond with "I'd rather not say"? When I interviewed for my current job, I was pressured by hr to give a number. It was extremely uncomfortable.

SAD 1: From an HR perspective, if you don't want to give, don't give it. If pressured, counter with the question, "If it's okay, I'd like to hear what the salary range is for the company has in mind for this role, and discuss salary later in the process."

Havas/TS1 is right -- for example moving between IPG agencies you can't get more than a 20% raise between roles.

This encourages dishonesty. I don't care anyways, as I'll check with your previous employer. Another example of bureaucrats meddling in something they have no business messing with. Case in point: the new FSLA changes.

Ha as 1: typically no, but there are ways (especially with big agencies) to get a fairly accurate number.

Talent Specialist, it's fucking irrelevant what I used to make or am making now. It's only relevant what the compensation rate for the new job is coupled with my unique skills and experience I bring to it.

Account Director 1: True. But at the end of the day, this is a business and we've got to stay competitive with other agencies. You are thinking too narrowly. The agency I work for, we pay Deloitte each year for salary surveys and make sure we're paying competitively. Asking what you made/make at a previous job is an important part of that research.

Absolutely not, you should not be asking the candidate! I never said nor do I think that you shouldn't be doing your business research on compensation to make sure you offer competitive salaries. Do candidates ask you what you pay your other employees at this level right now and would you quote exact salaries of your currently employed with you staff to prospective candidates?? Think about what you're saying! As you pointed, there are other legitimate ways to do your job of finding out and offering competitive compensation if you want to attract good candidates to work for you. Asking people for their private financials is not one of them.

First, salary is not private. Neither is it considered confidential in today's "Glassdoor" society. I ask, and if they volunteer, cool. If not, I'll research and find out other ways. If someone is honest, that goes a long way. But, recruiters know when applicants are BS'ing them. This isn't new, btw.

Well, you won't be allowed to ask shortly. I'm very aware it's not new.

And I'd love a recruiter to tell me they're only asking for statistical purposes to make sure they offer me a competitive salary, lol. Okaaay. If you want to spin wheels finding some other way, please go ahead, I know there are ways to find. Either way, all of that is unnecessary when you have a good candidate and you can instead focus on negotiation of the new salary instead.

I've responded to this a few times on threads about this exact same topic. For some reason I can't copy and paste text in this app. Do you have an iPhone? Search threads by topics or I'll type my reco a little later

I haven't figured out how to search on here yet 😳

Sooo - I have an Acquaintance who is the head of Marketing in a tech company. I recently asked him if he can refer me to a job - he said whats the rec number - and then said it's his job posting so it would be conflict of interest if he recommends me so he won't be able to. Is that a thing? I didn't know it was his req - but even if it is - he could still get me an interview no? Not sure if I'm thinking too much into this. Is this a thing?
