If you’re hunting for a summer job, today’s fact check will be of particular interest to you.

Our Fact Check question today asks, fact or fiction… are prospective employers allowed to ask about your pay history when you apply for a job?

Our Fact Check team looked into that, and we found that is a fact, you can be asked about your pay history when interviewing for a job.

A spokesperson for Texas Workforce Solutions tells us no law prohibits employers from asking that.

It’s up to the job seeker if they want to give that information.
