Connecticut Latest State to Join Ban the Box Movement

  2. 2.  In over a decade of practicing law, Daniel (Dan) Chammas, an attorney based in Los Angeles, California, has become known as an established litigator who represents Fortune 500 companies in employment law matters. A graduate of Stanford Law School, attorney Daniel Chammas is a partner at Ford Harrison LLP, which recently published a commentary on Connecticut’s new “Ban the Box” law. Effective January 1, 2017, it is illegal for employers in Connecticut, whether public or private, to inquire into an applicant’s previous criminal record, including arrests, charges, and convictions, on an employment application.
  3. 3.  Connecticut’s “Ban the Box” laws apply to all employers with regard to all employment contracts. However, unlike similar laws in other states, the Connecticut law is not clear on whether the same prohibition applies to independent contractors. With regard to employment contracts, the new law provides for only two exceptions where such inquiries may be made: where the employer will be compelled by state or federal law to request information on prior criminal conduct, or where the employment position requires a security or fidelity bond. Employers in the state will have to review their employment applications to remove all inquiries into criminal records before January 1, 2017.
