Pritzker signs Bill, Keeping Employers from Asking Applicants About Wage History

A new state law that was signed by Governor Pritzger prohibits employers from, asking applicants how much they were paid at their jobs beforehand. There were two other forms of legislation passed, but the two forms were vetod by the previous Governor Bruce Rauner. Citizens, who support this say, it’s designed to close the wage gap between men and women.  The bill will officially enter law in exactly 60 days.  Employee’s can seek up to $10,000 in damages if employers violate the law. In addition the law keeps safe right of employees to discuss their salaries and benefits with co-workers.
