Freshfields to remove criminal record box from applications

PUBLISHED January 21, 2014

Magic circle firm Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer is to stop asking job applicants to disclose whether they have criminal records on initial application forms.

Freshfields claims to be the first firm to make the move in support of the Ban the Box campaign set up by charity Business In The Community (BITC), which aims to promote the assessment of job seekers on the basis of their abilities.
