Ban the Box Legislation Now in Effect

January 1, 2015 marked the date that the County’s new Ban the Box legislation went into effect, which helps ensure that employers make hiring decisions based on relevant work qualifications without improperly considering a person’s criminal record.

The law restricts the timeframe during the application process when an employer may inquire about someone’s criminal history.
