Chicago Tonight Covers Ban the Box

In July, we told you about “Ban the Box” coming to Illinois. Effective January 1, 2015, this legislation forbids employers and employment agencies from inquiring about a job applicant’s criminal record or criminal history prior to the applicant being selected for an interview or, if there is no interview, prior to a conditional offer of employment. Yesterday, WTTW Chicago Tonight covered this issue and interviewed our group chair and blog contributor Jeffrey Risch on the issue. Check out the video here. The story runs around six and a half minutes long, you can see Jeff starting at minute five.

Welcome to the Labor and Employment Law Update where attorneys from Amundsen Davis blog about management side labor and employment issues.
