  • Sharing w-2 information , MA, NJ, DE, PA, NY

    I am in the midst of changing jobs. My prospective employer wants to look at my w-2 before making me an offer.
    1. Does the prospective employer company have the right to see my w-2 which is a personal document?
    2. What rights do I have to protect my W-2 information as it is a personal document?

    They have the legal right to ask you. If you don't want to provide the information, and you are disqualified from consideration, that's your choice.
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

      1. Does the prospective employer company have the right to see my w-2 which is a personal document?

      Yes, if they wish to have more proof than your (or your employer's) word as to what your salary was, they may legally ask to see your W-2.

      2. What rights do I have to protect my W-2 information as it is a personal document?

      If you don't wish to show it to them, you don't have to. But if they choose to use your refusal to do so as a reason to disqualify you from consideration and thereby do not may you an offer, that is legal.
      The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
