Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder is ordering the state to no longer ask job applicants and people seeking certain occupational licenses to check a box if they have been convicted of a felony.
Republican Gov. Rick Snyder is “banning the box” on state job applications in an attempt to help formerly convicted felons return to the workforce and set an example for employers across Michigan.
The checkbox asking applicants if they have been convicted of a felony is being removed from the state's job posting website and from occupation and construction code licensing applications.
