Wage History Protected; Disclosure of Pay Scale and Benefits Required

As of June 30, 2024, all District of Columbia employers will be prohibited from:

  • Screening applicants based on their wage history, including by requiring that it satisfy minimum or maximum criteria or by requesting or requiring it for an interview or job offer considerations; or
  • Seeking an applicant’s wage history from a former employer.

Employers will also be required to:

  • Provide the minimum and maximum projected salary or hourly pay in all job listings and position descriptions advertised. This range must be from the lowest to the highest pay that the employer in good faith believes at the time of the posting it would pay for the advertised job, promotion, or transfer opportunity.
  • Disclose to prospective employees the healthcare benefits that employees may receive before the first interview.

Applicants will be able to ask about this information if the employer doesn’t provide it. Employers will also be required to conspicuously post a workplace notice about these legal rights.
