'Ban the Box' bill has one last hurdle to clear
"A bill to prevent employers from asking prospective workers, at least at first, whether they have a felony conviction won preliminary approval in the Colorado Senate on Thursday."
"The so-called Ban the Box measure, HB1025, is designed to help convicted felons to at least get in the door and be considered for employment, rather than be dismissed outright because of past infractions."
"Some of those applications don't ask for details of a felony, but merely have a box that needs to be checked yes or no if an applicant has such a conviction."
