Bill would ban consideration of salary history for Montgomery County hires

Andrea Johnson, senior counsel for state policy with the National Women’s Law Center, said she believed Montgomery would be the first jurisdiction in Maryland to enact a ban on examining pay history, although similar legislation is before the General Assembly in Annapolis.

“We hope Montgomery County taking this important step today to stop the use of salary history will help set the course for the rest of the state to do the same,” Johnson said at the news conference.
