Ban-The-Box Guide. A Comprehensive Summary of Laws Across the United States
We have been regularly alerting you on our blog about updates and changes regarding ban-the-box laws, and new laws seem to crop up all the time. In fact, ban-the-box updates have overwhelmingly been the subject of our blog posts over the last several months.
The varying laws are staggering, and it is difficult to stay abreast of the changes. Which is why we are very happy to call your attention the National Employment Law Project’s (NELP) April 2019 publication, the most comprehensive and up-to-date summary of ban-the-box laws in cities, counties, and states across the U.S. that we have seen.
The NELP Ban-the-Box Guide outlines the myriad of laws in cities, counties, and states, as well as explaining to which employer segments the laws apply, and much more. Please reference the guide here, and be sure to review the table at the end that summarizes all state and local ban-the-box and fair-chance laws and policies.
