What are Ban The Box Laws?
A recent wave of state and municipal laws aimed at removing the checkbox on job applications that asks if an applicant has a criminal history, Ban the Box legislation prevents employers from automatically disqualifying potential candidates who may have a criminal record. The purpose of the legislation is to allow ex-offenders the opportunity to display their qualifications during the hiring process before being preemptively barred from certain jobs due to their criminal history.
