Rep. Mark Wheatley (D)


HB 140 (Employment Selection Procedures Act Amendments)

Libertas Institute opposes this bill.

This bill would prohibit a company from seeking any information regarding a job applicant's past compensation history.

Libertas opposes this bill. Employers take many factors into their consideration of whether to hire an applicant. Past compensation is one such factor that an at-will employer should have the ability to determine; criminalizing their access to the information is unnecessary.
