Ban the Box
Many national companies have eliminated the box on job applications where a candidate is required to disclose his or her criminal history. Companies that have banned the box are complying with state laws and municipal ordinances that discriminate against ex-offenders, but it doesn't mean that a potential employer, whether it be a government of private position won't use a criminal background as a basis for rejection, it simply pushes the background check to a later point in the application process. But it's a foot in the door that didn't exist before the ban the box campaign .
