Attorney General Maura Healey is warning state businesses not to unfairly discriminate against job applicants with criminal records.

Healey's office says an investigation made public Monday found 19 businesses had violated the state's "ban the box" law,  which bars employers from asking about criminal record information on a candidate's initial job application.
