Ban-the-Box Trend Will Continue in 2016 | NFIB Legal Ease

Ban-the-box laws generally prohibit employers from inquiring about a criminal record on a job application, forcing them to wait until later in the hiring process to ask about criminal history. In the last two years, ban-the-box laws applicable to private-sector employers were passed in Illinois, New Jersey, Oregon, New York City, San Francisco and the District of Columbia. The trend of this legislation is likely to continue in 2016, especially with a recent boost at the hands of the Obama administration. http://www.NFIB.com/Legal
