Ban-the-Box and Other Pre-Employment Dilemmas

Finding qualified applicants for jobs is a constant challenge for reasons that go beyond simply finding individuals with the necessary skills, experience, training and education.

Employers must also identify candidates who fit with a company’s culture, who will work well with others, and who will be trustworthy and help solve, rather than create, employment-related issues.

As a result, many employers have adopted processes designed to identify latent issues with applicants, such as criminal history inquiries and background checks.

While employers took these steps with relatively limited legal restriction or government oversight for many years, trends such as “ban-the-box” are now sweeping the country. Agencies like the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission are taking aggressive action to combat perceived areas for potential discrimination and unfairness in pre-employment inquiries.
