Lost in the overwhelming passing of the new BARF (Bovinated Asset Relief Program) bill - there's more pork in this bill than on a pig farm - was President Obama's signing of the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. While I believe this bill is more fluff than substance - it promotes voluntary compliance with anti-discrimination laws by employers - it's still a step in the right direction.

One was it may impact recruiters is in asking for salary histories. We all know how this dirty little game is played: Find a great candidate, see that they're earning far less than the incumbent and based upon knowing their salary history, the person is paid less than the target band for the position.

This is truly a slippery slope.
