If this is in the US, it’s illegal. No one can ask you for proof of compensation nor can they confirm it via background checks. All they can do is confirm if you worked somewhere.

This. Illegal.

Can happen and not necessarily illegal. Federal govt frequently does this to negotiate higher steps for hires.

Don’t think thats even legal

It’s not illegal and they don’t have to hire you. I’ve heard of it happening when HR doesn’t believe what you told them and/or they might need to offer you more than what they typically pay for the role.

OP, are you trying to apply for the Turkey Hill pump attendant again and asking for $250k?

Nope state laws uphold. It’s illegal to ask W2 and paystub

Lol that you think business cares about employment laws. The enforcement mechanisms have been gutted, labor unions are on a death knell, and they only have to use a rudimentary excuse for not hiring this person. OP: say “I don’t provide this but my research says you’re in the ballpark. What is your offer?” If they absolutely need your paystubs to move forward, it’s likely this isn’t a great employer. Had this happen once and they lowballed me and I left before the EOY.

Nope. Tell them you don’t share but “the range I’ve been quoted/researched seems in the ballpark.”

Run for the hills!

Never

Illegal in NY

It’s not illegal everywhere in the US. It depends on the exact jurisdiction. There are some states that allow it - e.g., Texas. https://hhs.texas.gov/laws-regulations/forms/1000-1999/form-h1028-employment-verification
