An Employer Asking Applicant About His Salary In His Previous Work.is It Right?

11

Good evening naijaworlders, I went for an interview yesterday and among questions that was ask in the written interview is "How much was your salary in the previous school where you worked?". I wrote " it's confidential " because I thought it isn't formal to be asking such question in an interview. So, during the oral interview, they asked while I didn't write the amount, I told them I don't want to disclose it and I don't think it's formal. I decided not to argue it further when the principal said it's formal, even though I didn't disclose the amount in the end. So, my people, have you ever experienced such? And is it formal to ask applicants of the exact amount they receive as salary in the organisation where they formerly work?
