It's Time to Ban the Box
The Workforce Opportunity Act would remove questions about criminal history from state job applications. Removing these questions from applications, or "banning the box," means employers can evaluate candidates for jobs based on their qualifications rather than prior criminal history.
Removing questions about prior convictions on state job applications is an important first step in creating employment opportunities for individuals who have paid their debts to society.
