DevOps Engineer Salary Ranges for 2018

In2018 marks a huge change in how recruiters, HR departments, and Managers view salary. Several cities have passed legislation that prohibits prospective employers in the private sector, from asking questions about applicants salary and compensation history.

How the ban on asking ‘What’s your current salary?’ could affect you can still ask candidates about their “salary expectations,” or the amount of money they would like to make in the new role.

In addition to the Big Apple, the question is also illegal in New Orleans, Oregon and Puerto Rico.

The law, which bans employers from asking candidates about their salary history, is the result of months of work by the city’s Commission on Human Rights and growing political support.

“Women and people of color deserve to be paid what they’re worth, not held back by their current or previous salary. Today’s law will enable job seekers to negotiate a fair salary based on their skills and will help break the cycle of income inequality that has been so prevalent in the workforce for so long.” read more at
