Illinois Amends Equal Pay Act
Tags : Salary History Legislation
The Equal Pay Act of 2003 has been amended to clarify an exception regarding wage and salary expectations.
Within the Act, the State specifically indicates that while employers are prohibited from inquiring into an individual's wage and salary history, employers are permitted to engage in discussions regarding an applicant's expectations pertaining to wage or salary, benefits, and other compensation. Effective January 1, 2022, the list of compensation discussion items will also include "unvested equity or deferred compensation that the applicant would forfeit or have canceled by virtue of the applicant's resignation from the applicant's current employer."
Illinois' Equal Pay Act of 2003 can be reviewed in its entirety here.
Employers are encouraged to review current practices involving wage and salary history and determine the impact of these updates.
