‚ÄúBan the Box‚ÄĚ Employment Application Reform

In an effort to reduce barriers that prevent¬†community members from finding work here in Virginia, “Ban-the-Box” removes/defers¬†the question about an individual‚Äôs criminal history from the initial employment application.

B-T-B passed in other Virginia local Municipalities:  Newport News, City of Richmond, Norfolk, Hampton, Virginia Beach, Portsmouth, Petersburg & Fredericksburg!

Let’s go Danville and all other¬†local¬†Municipalities/City agencies throughout VA.
