Hawaii recently amended its Ban the Box law, which had been the first of its kind when it passed in 1998. The amendment is focused on strengthening the protections afforded to ex-offenders by decreasing the look back period from ten years for conviction records. As amended, the look back period is now seven years for felonies and five years for misdemeanors. The amended law is effective immediately.
