Danville is Banning the Box


Danville, VA - Danville City Council is joining other cities in Virginia and banning the box.

Tuesday night the council voted unanimously to remove the question regarding criminal convictions on city job applications beginning July first.

That doesn't affect private businesses.

Background checks will still occur... and the felony question can and will be asked ... just during the interview rather than application.

Seven other cities, including Richmond and Charlottesville, have also banned the box on city employment applications.
