Karl Heideck on Philadelphia’s New Law on Employers
In a recent article in his blog, Karl Heideck expounded on the new law that bars employers from seeking their employees’ salary histories. The law came into force on the 23rd of January when it was signed by Philadelphia’s mayor Jim Kenney. This came as a relief to Worker’s Rights Advocate groups, but the journey was not an all smooth ride. The law was faced with legal challenges as petition after petition was filed in court.
First was the Chamber of Commerce, which filed for an injunction on the implementation of the law at a district court. In response to this filing, the Eastern District of Pennsylvania court made a decision to stay the law. In a turn of events, the city filed a counter motion that aimed at having the lawsuit terminated since it had no backing of how the law would adversely affect businesses. The city won the case, and the lawsuit was dismissed. The law, however, faces future uncertainties. It is well evident that some employers will look loopholes in the law and find ways to circumnavigate the law.
