Please note : State agencies that contact job applicants do not usually request personal or financial information via text message or over the phone in connection with your response to a job posting.
If you are contacted for such information by these methods, or any other method, please verify the identity of the individual before transmitting such information to that person.
Pursuant to Executive Order 161, no State entity, as defined by the Executive Order, is permitted to ask, or mandate, in any form, that an applicant for employment provide his or her current compensation, or any prior compensation history, until such time as the applicant is extended a conditional offer of employment with compensation.
If such information has been requested from you before such time, please contact the Governor's Office of Employee Relations at (518) 474-
6988 or via email at info goer.ny.gov.
