Ban the Box

On March 31, 2011, Philadelphia, PA City Council passed a “Ban the Box” bill, regulating the ability of employers to conduct criminal background checks in the employment process. Mayor Nutter signed the bill into law and it will apply to city agencies AND private employers employing 10 or more persons within the City of Philadelphia. Under the new legislation: ·      Employers would be precluded from inquiring about arrests that did not result in convictions, unless required or permitted by another law; and ·      Employers would be precluded from making any inquiry regarding criminal convictions before and during the application process and initial interview process, or from requiring that applicants disclose any such information. It seems that after the first interview is conducted, the employer is free to conduct a criminal background check. ·      Banning the box appears to give applicants with a criminal conviction, the opportunity be considered for opportunities prior to the employer’s knowledge of their criminal background. Additionally, it seems that the legislation is providing those with criminal backgrounds, an opportunity to compete with an equal playing field. Imagine your role as a Human Resource Manager within an organization. Please answer the following questions: ·      What are communication strategies that can be used to communicate the regulatory changes to hiring leaders within an organization? ·      What are some of the policy changes that will need to take place within the organization? ·      What are your thoughts regarding the “Ban the Box” concept?Check out this website related to our topic: You must cite within the text of your response and include multiple references in addition to the text.Must be at least 300 words and in APA format.
