Website Title: Ensuring People with Convictions Have a Fair Chance to Work
Description: The Fair Chance to Compete for Jobs Act of 2019 is a federal “ban the box” policy that was signed into law on December 20, 2019. In partnership with grassroots organizations, Congress, and other criminal justice advocates, NELP has advocated for this crucial legislation at the federal level for years. The law prohibits federal employers and private employers that contract with the government from inquiring about conviction history until a conditional offer has been made. The law not only provides ban the box protection, but it also includes complaint and appeal procedures for any employers that violate the policy.
