CHARLOTTE, N.C. —
On Monday night, City Council agreed to look into the so-called "Ban the Box" proposal. It would remove the question on city applications asking people if they have been convicted of a felony. Proponents said it would help candidates land an interview then explain anything that shows up in a background check. They said Durham already has signed on. Opponents said the city's employment policies do not discriminate against those with convictions, but the council voted to send the idea to its economic development committee.
