Distilled from the National Employment Law Project's (NELP's) work with jurisdictions across the country and applicable to any state or region, this toolkit is designed for jurisdictions as they craft fair chance policies, including “ban the box”.

The toolkit includes a top ten principles to follow, including avoiding stigmatizing language and expanding fair chance policies to private employers.

The toolkit also includes a model administrative memo, resolution, and model ordinance for cities and counties as well as a model state executive order and model state legislation.
