Ban The Box

New Hampshire 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 NH, 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.
