City of Charlotte, North Carolina joins “Ban the Box” movement.

April 9, 2014 | Bryan Barajas

City of Charlotte has removed the box on city job applications that asks candidates to disclose their criminal records.   The change means the city will delay asking about an applicant’s criminal record until later in the hiring process.  Officials will continue to conduct background checks on finalists for open positions.


City officials said that the decision about hiring someone with a criminal conviction would depend on the nature of the offense and how it relates to the job opening.
