You Are Invited to: Understanding “Ban the Box”: Creating a Fair Chance
Tompkins County Public Library
101 East Green Street, Ithaca, NY
The two-hour forum will provide opportunity for business owners, organizations, and individuals to learn more about removing employment application “check-box” questions regarding criminal records, and delaying the background check inquiry until later in the hiring process.
Questions will be addressed by panelists representing government, academia, law, small business, and non-profits who have implemented “Ban the Box” at their workplaces; who have had experience with the criminal justice system; or who are working to support those who are re-entering the community and seeking to be productive citizens.
