Ban-The-Box Activity This Week!
It’s been about a month since we’ve updated you on activity involving ban-the-box laws, so we found two events occurring this week to bring to your attention.
The Governor of Colorado signed the statewide ban-the-box legislation into law this week. The legislation affects public and private sector employers. You can find more information about the new law here.
The Attorney General is actively enforcing the State’s Ban-the-box law. Recently 19 businesses were cited for violating the law. And in 2018, 21 citations were issued, some of those citations resulted in fines. Read more here.
The varying city, county and state laws are overwhelming, and it is difficult to stay abreast of the changes. Which is why we would like to remind you of the National Employment Law Project’s (NELP) April 2019 publication, the most comprehensive and up-to-date summary of these laws we have seen.
