â€śBan the Boxâ€ť Employment Application Reform
In an effort to reduce barriers that preventÂ community members from finding work here in Virginia, “Ban-the-Box” removes/defersÂ the question about an individualâ€™s criminal history from the initial employment application.
B-T-BÂ passed in other Virginia localÂ Municipalities:Â Newport News,Â City of Richmond, Norfolk, Hampton, Virginia Beach, Portsmouth, Petersburg & Fredericksburg!
Let’s go Danville and all otherÂ localÂ Municipalities/City agencies throughout VA.
