Did you know that as many as 70 million Americans have some type of criminal record that can negatively impact their ability to find jobs? Fair Chance hiring is designed to give individuals with criminal records greater employment opportunities.

As it currently stands, 37 states and 250 municipalities have enacted fair chance or ban-the-box laws, and more states are following suit. Being a Fair Chance employer means that you base your employment decisions on job applicants’ qualifications rather than on their criminal records.

Why should you Attend: By developing the right policies and procedures, employers demonstrate that they fully support Fair Chance laws while also creating an inclusive workplace where diversity is valued. Whether you’re new to Fair Chance hiring or in need of a refresher, this webinar will provide you with the essential information you’ll need to remain legally compliant by learning what Fair Chance hiring involves, understand recent relevant laws, and how your organization can implement fair chance hiring policies to remain legally compliant.
