University of California 'bans the box'
according to a news release. Instead, information about prior convictions will be requested during the background and reference check stage, after applicants have advanced to the final stage in the hiring process based on their qualifications, talents and skills. The policy will be implemented as early as October. “This change to UC’s hiring process creates more opportunity for more qualified and capable people. Many have earned UC degrees after their legal difficulties and they should be able to continue to build a successful, stable future for themselves,” said Dwaine B. Duckett, UC’s vice president of system-wide human resources. While ‘‘ban the box’ policies have been implemented across the country at a state and local level, the University of California is one of the first schools to follow suit. In total, ‘ban the box’ legislation has now embraced by 28 states and more than 150 cities in the US.]]>
