Kentucky Joins More than 150 Jurisdictions in Ban-the-Box Hiring Practice

Kentucky Governor, Matt Bevin, has issued an executive order, known as the Fair Chance Employment Initiative, removing conviction questions from all executive branch job applications. Governor Bevin is quoted as saying:

“Ours is a nation of second chances, founded upon core principles that include mercy and redemption. The simple act of removing this box will help to level the playing field for all applicants, and it is my sincere hope that many of the private employers in our state will consider doing the same thing.”
