Kentucky “bans the box” from state job applications
Tags : Ban the Box
Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin signed an executive order that will remove questions about criminal history from the initial application for state jobs in the executive branch.
The executive order – known as the Fair Chance Employment Initiative – will still allow executive branch agencies to inquire about criminal records before interviewing an applicant. The order also permits agencies to consider criminal history when making hiring decisions.
The full text of the executive order can be found here.
With the signing of the executive order, Kentucky becomes the 25th state to adopt a “ban the box” hiring policy. For a complete list of the states and other locales that have adopted similar policies, click here to read our “Ban the Box” Compliance Issue Analysis.
