Ban The Box

Rhode Island created a document for Labor and Labor Relations. Chapter 28 included a Fair Employment Practices section that decreed employers may not:

  • Place questions about arrests or convictions on job applications.
  • Ask about convictions or run criminal background checks until after they have conducted an interview or extended a conditional job offer.
  • Refuse to hire an applicant due to their race or color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, disability, age, or country of ancestral origin.
