LOUISVILLE, Ky (WDRB) -- It's said 160,000 adults in Louisville have a criminal record and Thursday night, Metro Council introduced an ordinance establishing fair hiring policies for them.
The ordinance was requested by the CLOUT organization and calls for the hiring process for city jobs to provide interviews to everyone.
The ordinance is often referred to as "ban the box" referring to the check mark box on job applications that asks if you've ever been convicted of a crime.
CLOUT says their vision is for Louisville to be a city of justice where its systems assure that all people are treated fairly.
"Cities about our size, about a dozen of them have already passed similar legislation called ban the box because they know they have to do something to help people to reenter into our society," said Attica Scott, Metro Council, District 26.
Certain job categories would be exempt from the ordinance.
Action by the council on the ordinance isn't required until March 2014.
