The Washington Post quoted Of Counsel Mark Neuberger in an article titled “Employers may have a trove of data on job candidates. Here’s how workers can control the narrative” which covered situations that arise when a hiring company has unexpected or inaccurate information about job candidates.
“If a conversation leads the candidate to voluntarily offer that information, then it’s fair game. And in some states, employers can ask about salary information at later points in the hiring process,” Mark shared. He went on to add that before candidates begin interviewing, they should familiarize themselves with local laws, especially as remote workers look to other states for employment. Most employment laws can be found on state governments’ websites.
