Default Ban the Box Ordinance approved in Richmond, CA

I didn't know Richmond was so progressive! This is great news. Their City Council has just passed an ordinance prohibiting employers from requiring job applicants to check a box indicating whether they have a criminal history. Applicants will no longer have to disclose a criminal history at any point in the application process. The only exception is for "sensitive" employment-- such as positions involving work with children, the elderly, or in law enforcement.

I really wish more places did this. I'm excited for the felons living in this area that ban the box is going into effect!

I could think of another box I would like to see banned but good for them.
