    How much did you pay for your house? Is it worth the same today? Your last negotiated salary from another job shouldn't be relevant, either. You can explain that the salary from your last job was negotiated some time ago, in a different market, with different responsibilities, etc...usually the HR people are trying to fill in a blank on their form. If you live in a state where they can ask you, does that mean you have to give them an answer?

    Correct but who do you think generally produces salary bands and signs off on offers? HR has a huge part in these policies, and can nix an offer if it’s against a policy or if they feel it’s too high...I’ve seen and heard of it a lot.

    Unless you really need this role I wouldn't give them a salary history, personally I won't be providing that to any company that asks, IMO even asking your current salary isn't reasonable

    Hit them with the "NDA" reason...they can't really object to that.

    I'm so glad NYC passed this bill, it takes effect at the end of the month.
