California Joins the Ban-the-Box Bandwagon

Jen Rubin, a Member in Mintz’s San Diego office, authored this piece about California’s new Ban the Box regulation. The piece notes that the regulation raises the bar employers must clear in order to inquire about past convictions when speaking with applicants and employees. Jen notes that this regulation prohibits such inquiries if they may have an “adverse impact” on an anti-discrimination basis, or if the employer cannot prove the inquiry is “job-related and consistent with business necessity”.
