Ban The Box

Montana currently does not have a statewide Ban the Box law. These laws are designed to give individuals who have minor criminal records a second chance at employment, reduce the rate of recidivism and expand the applicant pool for job seekers.

Numerous states have passed these laws and additional states, such as MT, could implement their own. If so, the team at Backgrounds Online will update this page so it has the most current and accurate information possible.

Consumer Reports Cannot Contain Obsolete Information

A consumer report, such as a background check, is not allowed to include:

  • Criminal records more than seven years old.
  • Paid tax liens more than seven years old.
  • Other adverse information more than seven years old.
  • Bankruptcies more than fourteen years old.
