Ban the box laws prohibit employers from asking if a candidate has ever been convicted of a crime as part of the initial employment application. In jurisdictions where these laws have been implemented, the question of criminal history is delayed until later in the candidate assessment process with the goal of creating more employment opportunities for individuals with criminal records. HireRight’s Compliance Workbench will help customers to stay current on rapidly changing ban the box legislation and provides options to fulfill legal obligations in various jurisdictions in an efficient manner. The tool uses job location data and each candidate’s current address to identify applicable ban the box requirements. Compliance Workbench also allows customers to create and maintain letters, forms and assessment questionnaires unique to each candidate’s specific circumstances.
“Compliance Workbench is integral to HireRight’s continued mission to develop technologies that improve the hiring process and help employers stay ahead in a constantly-shifting regulatory environment,” said Jim Daxner, Chief Product Officer at HireRight. “This tool will equip employers with the tools they need to manage their compliance, and further support our efforts to improve the hiring process by electronically delivering customized documents and streamlining correspondence with candidates.”
