Ban the Box
Alabama does not have a statewide Ban the Box law. State employment applications will ask you about a criminal history. There is no state law about how government employers should consider criminal convictions. However, state policy does require government agencies to consider whether an applicant's conviction directly relates to the professional license that they are applying for.
