New Jersey strengthens “Ban the Box” protections for applicants
Tags : Ban the Box
New Jersey amended its Opportunity to Compete Act to prohibit certain employment discrimination based upon expunged criminal records.
Prior law prohibited employers from requiring an applicant to complete any employment application that made any inquiries regarding an applicant's criminal record during the initial employment application process.
The new law specifically includes expunged criminal records as also being off-limits. Oral or written inquiries by employers and online applications will be held to the same standard.
