New law becomes effective Sept. 1, 2019

Alabama has adopted a new law that prohibits employers from discriminating against job applicants who fail to provide a salary history.

The new law also prohibits employers from paying a different wage to employees based on their sex or race when they perform similar work, unless the difference is based on a system that accounts for seniority, merit, quantity or quality of production, or another differential not based on race or sex.
