TriMet Board of Directors approve 'ban the box' rules regarding criminal history

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

On Wednesday, TriMet's Board of Directors have unanimously approved to "ban the box" on all job applications.

The new change complies with a new state law that will take effect Jan 1, 2016.

The new law still allows TriMet to conduct criminal background checks early in the process for bus and LIFT operators, but TriMet will discontinue the practice of asking about criminal convictions on all job applications, and only conduct a background check for select job positions, including bus and LIFT operators, after a conditional job offer has been made.
