"Ban The Box" with Gov. Wolf

Rep. Harris stands with Governor Tom Wolf to "Ban the Box" and make it easier for people to get jobs in Pennsylvania.

It does not remove the question of criminal history from the hiring process, but instead defers the question until the first interview is conducted. The governing or legislative body seeking to adopt such a "Ban the Box" policy has the prerogative to exempt certain sensitive positions from this policy (e.g., law enforcement positions, positions dealing with vulnerable populations).
