Ban the Box

 StreetWise - USA 23 March 2019

Ban the Box is a new law introduced in several US states from January 1, 2019. It prohibits most public and private employers from inquiring about job applicant’s criminal background on applications, and refers to the check box on job applications inquiring about previous convictions. Advocates of the law hope that giving ex-convicts a fair chance at employment will decrease recidivism and, hopefully, reduce crime and violence throughout the community.
