New York City “Bans the Box”
New York City enacted Int. 0318-2014, i.e. the Fair Chance Act (the “Act”), into law, barring employers from inquiring into a job applicant’s criminal history until a conditional offer of employment has been made.
The Act also provides additional protections to current and prospective employees with criminal histories. The bill was signed by Mayor Bill de Blasio on June 29, and the new law will take effect on October 27, 2015.
The full text of the Act can be found here.

I enjoy collaborating with BIG, and know that if I have to reach out with a question/concern, a positive attitude with a willingness to find resolve is on the other side of an email or a phone call.
