ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -- New laws in New York state aim to prohibit gender pay discrimination, making it illegal to pay someone less based on their race, religion or gender identity.
The new laws go into effect Tuesday. They also bar employers from demanding prospective workers' salary histories.
The governor is calling on New York businesses to conduct internal reviews of pay policies and make adjustments if needed.
