Seeking work when a culture of human rights is missing from the economy makes us vulnerable to income inequality and exploitation.
PAYSLIPBANSA contends that it is illegal for firms to:
1. Advertise vacancies without being upfront about a salary range
2. Demand pay expectations without being upfront first
3. Demand information about an applicants pay history without being upfront about an offer
4. Extort rival employer pay slips or cost-to-company information from job applicants
5. Agree among each other about compensation, either at a specific level or within a range;
6. Agree with another firm about employee benefits
7. Express to competitors that they should not compete aggressively for talent
8. Exchange company-specific information about employee compensation or terms of employment with another

When prospecting employers are not upfront about pay, a fair wage negotiation is impossible.
Equality, Fairness, Dignity & Respect
Secrecy prevents applicants from knowing if they can afford to take the job. Employers abuse power when they create information advantages for themselves, especially when they are not upfront about pay and demand pay slips. They reduce a competition for talent to wage surveillance and the instituting of income inequality.
Job adverts that use pay secrecy obstruct respect for job seeker dignity, right to equality and fair process.
