"WTF is Ban the Box?" An Overview for Employers in Twitter-Sized Bites

Posted by Bob Mather on March 10, 2015

WTF is "Ban the Box"? That was the direct Twitter message I received from a small business CEO this past weekend.

I always love communicating with CEO’s and appreciate their “to the point" style. I imagined her in a meeting with her lawyers and listening to them opine on this legislative tidal wave sweeping the nation. Her blood pressure rising in frustration. (It actually didn't require much imagination, as you'll see from our conversation below, where I gave her the 360º overview on Ban the Box legislation in 140 character "chunks" via Twitter).
