As previously reported, the Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce filed a lawsuit challenging the legality of the Philadelphia Ordinance banning employers from making wage history inquiries. Although the Court initially dismissed the legal challenge due to the Chamber’s failure to specifically identify a member harmed by the Ordinance, on June 13, 2017 the Chamber filed an Amended Complaint seeking to cure this procedural defect by detailing the harm the Chamber and specifically identified members will sustain as a result of the Ordinance. The case is captioned The Chamber of Commerce for Greater Philadelphia v. City of Philadelphia and Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission, No. 17-01548 (E.D. Pa. April 6, 2017).

New York City’s salary inquiry ban will take effect on October 31, 2017, absent a successful legal challenge.
