As part of an ongoing effort to assist our customers in monitoring legislation, HireRight presents this summary of state and local “ban-the-box” laws – e.g., those laws that specifically regulate the timing of inquiry into criminal history information by private (not government) employers for employment purposes. This summary is designed to provide a quick outline of the laws that have been passed and how they affect employers.
Customers are reminded that in the jurisdictions noted below, in which a specific notice must be provided to an applicant/employee in connection with the inquiry into criminal history information for employment purposes, standard disclosure and authorization form language may not satisfy the specific notice requirements.
