New York - Ithaca Ban the Box Law

If you work or are seeking employment with a government agency in the City of Ithaca, you are covered by their Ban the Box law. This law does not apply to private employers. The City of Ithaca has barred all its public employers from asking candidates any questions about their criminal history, except where required by law. Once you have become a "finalist in the hiring process," an employer may then conduct a background check.
