Ban The Box

West Virginia 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 WV, 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.

The West Virginia Human Rights Act

This policy was created to help ensure equal employment opportunities to all persons without regard to race, religion, color, national origin, ancestry, sex, age, blindness or disability.
