The “ban the box” campaign is one of the most active legislative movements in employment law. The laws, which prohibit employers from asking job applicants about their criminal history, have been endorsed in cities, counties and states across the nation for several years.

Join us for a breakfast seminar that will provide an overview of these rules, with a specific concentration on Missouri and Illinois laws. We will explain ban-the-box laws, whether they apply to you and how your organization can comply.
