The City of Waterloo recently passed a Ban the Box ordinance making it the first city in Iowa to impose these requirements on private businesses. Ban the Box allows employers to conduct criminal background checks only after making a conditional job offer and allows them to withdraw the job for a legitimate business reason based on an applicant’s criminal history.

The Ban the Box ordinance could take several weeks to take effect.
