TheBan the Box campaign launched in October 2013 at which time, 24 employers had committed to support the campaign. Nearly 6 years on and over 130 employers have now removed the ‘tick box’ from application forms which ask about criminal convictions.
We’ve developed the list of Ban the Box employers (which Business in the Community host on their website) into information more aimed at individuals with a criminal record, including the name and contact details of the employer as well as setting out the point at which the employer may ask you to disclose your criminal record.
Our aim is to regularly update and improve this information. If you have any experience (good or bad) of applying to or working for one of these companies, please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
