Delaware's Ban the Box Law prevents public employers from inquiring into or considering the criminal record or criminal history of an applicant during the initial application process, up to an including the first interview. (Public employers are governmental employers, not private sector businesses.) However, the governmental employer may inquire into or consider the criminal record or criminal history of an applicant after completion of the first interview. Also, a public employer may disqualify an applicant from employment based on criminal history where the exclusion is job related for the position in question and consistent with business necessity. So a person with a criminal record will have the best chance of obtaining employment by applying to a governmental employer for a job where there is no business need to exclude applicants with a criminal history.
