“Ban the Box” Policy Implemented in Daytona

Recently, the city of Daytona Beach, Florida officially implemented its “ban the box” policy. The Daytona Times reported that as of July 1, 2015, candidates for city employment will no longer be asked to disclose information about their criminal background until after an offer of conditional employment has been made.


The policy does not prohibit background checks, rather it means they will take place later in the hiring process. Additionally, certain positions, such as police and fire, as well as those working with children, will still require applicants to share information about their criminal history on the initial application.

Oregon Next State to “Ban the Box”

On June 25, 2015, Oregon’s governor, Kate Brown, signed “ban the box” legislation, making Oregon the latest state to join the the movement. The new law prohibits private employers from asking about criminal history on job applications.


Seyfarth Shaw reports that the legislation is similar to other legislation of its type. Employers can’t ask applicants about criminal history before the first interview, but can ask before making a final hiring decision if an interview is conduction. If there is no interview, the employer must make a conditional offer of employment before asking about criminal convictions. And as with other states, certain employers are exempt, including law enforcement and other employers required by law to inquire about an applicant’s criminal history.


Oregon joins Hawaii, Illinois, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Jersey and Rhode Island, which have extended “ban the box” laws to private employers. In addition to these states, cities including New York, Baltimore, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington D.C. also have enacted such laws that pertain to private employers.


The new Oregon law will take effect on January 1, 2016.
