Recently, Wichita, Kansas-based Koch Industries announced that it was no longer asking job seekers about their criminal history on applications.

Hoskins works with employers and the criminal justice system to ensure the transition of county offenders to the community, specifically in getting them jobs. It can be a difficult task getting some offenders to transition back into the community, Hoskins said, who is skeptical about the ultimate success of the ban the box movement.
