Consideration of Salary History
The Consideration of Salary History Ordinance bans employers, including City contractors and subcontractors, from considering current or past salary of an applicant in determining whether to hire the applicant or what salary to offer the applicant.
Note that the State of California has also passed legislation prohibiting employers from asking applicants about their current or past salary. The statewide law took effect on January 1, 2018. See the text of AB-168.
The San Francisco Board of Supervisors passed the Consideration of Salary History Ordinance on July 11, 2017.
