Illinois Passes Bill to Ban the Box

Effective January 01, 2015, the State of Illinois will impose a law that restricts employers in the state from asking about and inquiring into criminal record information. An employer or employment agency may not inquire about or into, consider, or require disclosure of the criminal record or criminal history of an applicant until the applicant has been determined qualified for the position and notified that the applicant has been selected for an interview by the employer or employment agency or, if there is not an interview, until after a conditional offer of employment is made to the applicant by the employer or employment agency.
