Board Bill Number 120 | Session 2019-2020
Ban the Box
The proposed bill would prohibit employers in the City from basing job hiring and promotion decisions on an applicant's criminal history unless the employer can demonstrate its relevance to the job-related decision, and inquiring about an applicant's criminal history until after it has been determined the applicant is otherwise qualified for the position, unless the applicant is part of a final pool of applicants for the job position and all of the applicants are asked. The forgoing would not apply where the employer is required by law or regulation to exclude applicants with certain criminal convictions.
