SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A revised gender-pay lawsuit seeking class-action status against Google now faults the search giant's habit of asking new hires about their prior salary, a practice now banned in California.

A new law taking effect this year in California bans employers from asking applicants about their past salaries, a measure designed to narrow the pay gap between men and women.

The suit also adds a fourth complainant - a preschool teacher with a master's degree - to the three women who say they were underpaid by Google compared with their male counterparts.

The suit led by lawyer James Finberg of San Francisco-based Altshuler Berzon says Google's use of prior compensation to set starting pay for employees results in men receiving higher starting salaries and better career tracks.
