Hootsworth’s Questions & Answers

Hi can I ask other co-workers about what they make without retribution?

Answer:

Yes, there's a relatively recent law passed in California and Massachusetts that protects an employee's right to ask co-workers about wages without retribution. This protection is part of a broader protection to ensure gender pay equity.
