Ban-the-Box laws set to change or enact in 2021

Excerpted from PR Web by Dan Adams

On January 1, 2021 a number of laws related to pre-employment background screening will change or be enacted, including a number related to Ban-the-Box, laws which govern the use of Criminal Background History as part of the vetting process. Adam Almeida, President and CEO of CriminalBackgroundRecords.com suggests: “With the new year hiring managers and HR Departments must review their employment hiring policies to remain complaint with new and/or changing laws governing the use of public records and a best practice remains to work with a well-qualified third-party pre-employment background screening agency, such as CriminalBackgroundRecords.com.”

In 2021 several new or updated changes to Ban-the-Box legislation will take place, undoubtedly the first of many changes that will occur over the course of the year.

In St. Louis a new Ban-the-Box bill is set to become law on January 1, 2021 and will have an immediate impact on private employers across that city.
