Ban the Box Laws

Ban the Box is the name associated with a campaign by civil rights groups and fair chance advocates to remove the checkbox on an employment application asking if applicants have a criminal record.
The intention for Ban the Box Laws is to remove obstacles that make it harder for ex-offenders to find a job. Without a job, it is believed that the chances that the ex-offender will re-offend will increase which would be detrimental to society.
