Fighting to Breakdown Barriers to Employment for Ex-Offenders

Employers

Ex-offenders work harder to find employment than most other  classes of folks. They are reliable, quick learning and loyal. There is a cost free federal bonding program for employers and tax incentives to promote the hiring of people with a criminal background to stem the vicious cycle of recidivism.

​​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 .
