A new law going into effect at the end of this month prohibits Nebraska employers from requiring employees not to disclose their wages as a condition of further employment.

Legislative Bill 217 prohibits Nebraska employers from discharging or otherwise retaliating against employees who have inquired about, discussed, or disclosed specific wage or comparative compensation information.

The measure, which takes effect on August 29, 2019, applies to all Nebraska employers that are subject to the Nebraska Fair Employment Practice Act, i.e., all Nebraska employers that have 15 or more employees for each working day in 20 or more calendar weeks during the current or preceding calendar year.
