Gov. Holcomb issues executive order to 'ban the box' in Indiana


ndiana Gov. Eric Holcomb issued an executive order to exclude criminal history from executive branch employment job applications on Thursday.

Starting July 1, initial employment applications for job openings within the executive branch will no longer ask applicants if they have been arrested or convicted of a crime, unless a conviction of a particular crime precludes that individual from employment in that specific job, according to Holcomb's order.

The executive order affects more than 1.12 million Hoosiers with some form of a criminal record, according to U.S. Justice Department data.

More than 70 million people in the United States have a prior arrest or conviction record, or nearly 1 in 3 adults, according to the National Employment Law Project. FULL ARTICLE
