Breaking Barriers to Employment: Ban the Box

A new D.C. law passed in 2014 says that certain employers are not allowed to ask questions about criminal background on initial job application forms, and can only ask about criminal convictions after a conditional offer of employment is made. This interactive workshop will teach you about the new law and will walk you through the process of filing a complaint if your rights are violated.
