Outside of the Box: Developing a Legally Compliant and Effective Criminal History Inquiry
Discover How To Legally Ask Applicants About Their Criminal History
Nationwide, the “ban the box” or “fair-chance hiring” movement is limiting when and what employers can ask applicants about their criminal history. In some cases, it is also creating additional record-keeping and notification headaches for employers.
In this webinar, we examine:
- The reasons behind the “ban the box” movement.
- The robust criminal history question employers should pose to applicants and how to modify it for state and local compliance.
- The importance of including individualized assessments in the criminal history review process.
- Common “fair-chance hiring” provisions, using Austin, Texas’ recently-passed Fair Chance Hiring ordinance as an example.
