April 3 – San Francisco makes changes to its “ban the box” regulation
On April 3, 2018, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors approved amendments to its Fair Chance Ordinance, also know as it ban the box ordinance. Amongst other changes, the ordinance now applies to employers with 5 or more employees instead of 20 or more as before. See the Board of Supervisor’s Legislative Digest for a comparison between the ordinance before the changes and after.
