I previously worked with the government at an aerospace company and held my TS/SCI clearance. During 2020 I suffered a loss and a series of mental health issues and due to my choices obtained 3 felony convictions- 2 DV, aggravated harassment and 1 for “revenge porn” - no employer is even giving me the time of day and well I’m open to just about anything earning a steady income is important. I am wondering how to approach or rather find an employer who will work with me. #felon

City Manager Shawn Sherrouse has implemented a "Ban the Box" process that will remove the questions about prior criminal convictions for job applicants!!

The new process goes into effect today, February 1st.

Ban the Box legislation started in 1998 with Hawaii being the first state to pass a law restricting employers from inquiring about a candidate’s criminal background prior to an offer being extended.

Since then, legislation has been enacted in 33 states and more than 150 municipalities. The state of Florida has not implemented similar legislation but several cities and counties within the state have Ban the Box initiatives including Tampa, Orlando, Gainesville, Jacksonville, Tallahassee and Sarasota, just to name a few.

The questions about criminal history will be removed from the City’s initial hiring process and potential job candidates that may have a criminal offense in their background will not be judged at the time of submitting their application.

Instead, criminal background checks that are part of the hiring process when a potential candidate is being considered for a position.

Do you think more states and towns would Ban the Box?

I'm trying to help out my boyfriend who has a criminal record in Virginia. He's a hard worker and he's paid his dues to provide for his family. If anyone knows a place that would be willing to hire him or somewhere he could find housing, it'd be greatly appreciated! #record #criminalrecord #felon

What do you all think about the Ban the Box initiative. This is the bipartisan legislation that Corey Booker and Rob Portman, among others, are sponsoring which would stop employers from asking about criminal history on applications. Heres' 2 links if you are interested.
