What is "Ban the Box"?

“Ban the Box” laws seek to remove the “check box” on job applications that job applicants are asked to check to disclose if they have a criminal record. These fair chance hiring laws advance job opportunities for ex-offenders. Currently, 37 states and over 150 cities and counties have “Ban the Box” laws.

An estimated 70 million people in the United States – nearly one in three adults in America – have a prior arrest or conviction record. As a result, many states, counties, and cities have adopted “Ban the Box” policies. ClearStar offers a complimentary white paper titled “How Do Ban the Box Policies Affect the Hiring Process for Employers?” to help explain these laws.


Guidance from the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) “recommends that employers not ask about convictions on job applications and that, if and when they make such inquiries, the inquiries be limited to convictions for which exclusion would be job-related for the position in question and consistent with business necessity.”
