CASE ENTRY

Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce v. City of Philadelphia

The city of Philadelphia bars employers from inquiring about a prospective employee’s wage history in setting or negotiating that employee’s wage. District Court: Which violates the First Amendment, at least as to making the inquiry. Preliminary injunction granted. Third Circuit: Nope. This case involves only commercial speech, which gets less protection, and the city put forward a ton of evidence to support this policy.
