摘要

This paper finds that firms experience a decline in innovation performance following the adoption of salary history bans (SHBs) which prohibit employers from asking job candidates’ salary history in the hiring process. We hypothesize that SHBs provide job seekers with stronger bargaining power, thus imposing higher difficulties for employers to hire efficient inventors. Consistent with this hypothesis, first, we find that employee wages increase after SHBs. Second, we document that firms hire fewer and less efficient inventors. Third, we show that restrictions on unions’ strength neutralize the adverse effect of SHBs on innovation.
