背景调查可以验证薪水吗?

雇主在招聘过程中想知道的关键信息之一是候选人的工资历史。招聘经理处于谈判的位置:他们想知道候选人可能接受什么样的薪水,不会有太多阻力,也不会拒绝工作机会并继续寻找工作。虽然一些雇主在发布职位列表时包含了基本工资,但其他雇主更喜欢使用候选人的工资历史来决定从哪里开始工资谈判。

与一些雇主认为的相反,标准的员工背景调查不包括工资验证检查。这些信息不会出现在犯罪记录搜索中——即使是 工作历史验证检查 或 参考检查 通常也不会涉及薪水历史的主题。

过去,雇主在背景调查过程中共享工资信息更为常见。现在,薪酬透明度正在消失。在一些城市和州,法律 禁止或限制 雇主使用工资历史作为就业基础。例如,在阿拉巴马州,一项于 2019 年 9 月生效的法规禁止雇主对拒绝提供工资历史的申请人或雇员采取不利行动。加州法律禁止在招聘过程中核实工资。

大多数有关工资历史的法规都是过去三四年通过的,这意味着可能还会有更多。

即使在允许雇主在招聘过程中权衡工资历史的领域,求职者和过去的雇主都没有法律义务提供它。事实上,许多雇主维持人力资源政策,禁止向第三方披露过去或现在雇员的工资历史。

为什么工资核实在员工背景调查中是一个有争议的话题?与薪水相关的背景调查的批评者说,他们阻止低薪个人快速或有意义地在薪水阶梯上晋升。雇主希望了解工资历史是有其原因的:这些信息使他们在工资谈判中具有优势,这可以帮助他们以低廉的价格获得高薪。

批评者认为,薪水应该基于工作及其职责,而不是一个人过去的收入。对工资历史检查最激烈的批评是,它们使男女之间或白人与少数民族之间的工资差距长期存在。

在 GOOHO.CN, 我们的就业历史验证检查 不包含工资历史。但是,这些检查可以揭示与招聘经理更相关的信息,包括职位、就业日期,有时还包括离职原因或重新雇用的资格。

Contrary to what some employers believe, standard employee background checks do not include salary verification checks. This information won’t show up on a criminal history search—even a work history verification check or reference check often won’t broach the subject of salary history.

In the past, it was more common for employers to share salary information as part of the background check process. Now, pay transparency is disappearing. In several cities and states, laws prohibit or restrict employers from using salary history as a basis for employment. In Alabama, for instance, a statute that went into effect in September 2019 bars employers from taking adverse action against an applicant or employee who refuses to provide salary history. California law bans salary verification during the hiring process.

Most of the statutes concerning salary history passed in the past three or four years, which means that there will likely be more to come.

Even in areas where employers are allowed to weigh salary history as part of the hiring process, neither job seekers nor past employers are legally obligated to provide it. In fact, many employers maintain HR policies that prohibit the disclosure of a past or present employee’s salary history to a third party.

Why are salary verifications such a controversial subject in employee background checks? Critics of salary-related background checks say that they prevent low-paid individuals from progressing up the salary ladder quickly or meaningfully. Employers have their reasons for wishing to know salary history: the information gives them an advantage in salary negotiation, which can help them to net a strong hire at a bargain price.

Critics argue that salary should be based on the job and its responsibilities, not on how much a person made in the past. The fiercest critique of salary history checks is that they perpetuate pay gaps between men and women or between whites and minorities.

At backgroundchecks.com, our employment history verification checks do not incorporate salary history. However, these checks can reveal information that is more relevant to a hiring manager, including job titles, dates of employment, and, sometimes, reason for leaving or eligibility for rehire.
