Our General Counsel, Alonzo Martinez, looks at 'Ban the Box' laws, which delay the timing for when employers can ask about a candidate's criminal history in the employment process.

This practice helps to provide all candidates an equal start in the employment process, but does not prevent employers from running criminal background checks.

Many of these laws have different regulations in regards to:

  • Timing
  • Scope
  • Content
  • Impact on the adverse action process
  • Exceptions to the laws
