Legislative & Legal Update 
Think Outside the Box

As a recruiter have you ever had the perfect applicant apply for a position and he/she was dispositioned as "not qualified" because of a conviction or prior arrest record? If you and/or the hiring manager were not aware of the applicants record would you be in a different mindset?

If you live in a city or county that has adopted "Ban the Box" or the "Fair Chance" ordinance then your applicant pool has probably grown exponentially. If you do not live in an area that has imposed this ordinance, you may want to prepare your organization for the California statewide ban the box regulation.  On February 16, 2017, five California assembly members introduced Assembly Bill 1008, which proposes to add a section to the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) containing new state-wide restrictions on an employer's ability to make pre-hire and other employment decisions based on an applicant or employee's criminal records, including a ban the box component. Ban the box refers to a grassroots effort to remove the check box on job applications that asks if a candidate has ever been convicted of a crime.  Read more
