The average person will have 12 jobs in their lifetime, a significant change from years ago when people stayed in one job their entire adult life. For many people, switching employers may be the fastest way to increase their earnings.
When you are looking for a new job, you may wonder if a prospective employer can ask you about your salary at your current or previous jobs.
This can be of particular concern with the rise in remote jobs. Employers may feel they can pay less than your previous in-person position if you will be working from home.
