The City of Columbia, SC Joins Ban-The-Box and Salary History Ban Movements!
The City of Columbia joined in with multiple other cities, states and municipalities and will no longer ask about criminal history on their initial employment application and will refrain from asking about previous salaries. The City is encouraging its vendors to follow suit. Read more here.
SHRM has published a chart of State and Municipality Ban-The-Box laws. It is a great resource for determining if your operations are subject to any of these laws.
We have added another helpful link to our resource page here - The National Employment Law Project’s (NELP) April 2019 publication, a comprehensive compilation of ban-the-box laws.
