In mid-August, the Opportunity to Compete Act was passed by New Jersey legislators. The act becomes effective on March 1st, 2015. This act ‘bans the box’ on employment applications that require the disclosure of criminal history info from potential applicants during the initial application process. This ruling applies to both the initial application AND subsequently, to the first interview.
The act will cover applicants for all public and private employers with 15+ employees who do business, employ people or take applications for employment in the state of New Jersey.
