Ban-The-Box & Fair Hiring Laws By State

We update this overview of ban-the-box rules often. But laws change quickly, and we cannot guarantee all information is current. Always consult your attorney for legal advice.

Ban-the-box compliance, targeted screens, and individualized assessments apply only when taking adverse action due to criminal records. They are not required when taking adverse action based on non-criminal records.


Who must follow: This ban-the-box law applies only to public sector employers for the State of Utah, including counties and municipalities in the state.

Timing of inquiry: Public sector employers for the state of Utah may only inquire into criminal history during the initial interview or later; or, if no interview is conducted, until a conditional offer of employment.

Adverse action implications: None
