Mario and Susan will review employment hiring laws that prohibit discrimination on the basis of a conviction. Adhering to background investigation best practices, assessing each applicant on an individual basis, and evaluating (from all angles) the “duties and responsibilities that are necessarily related to the job” will be discussed. Commitment from top levels of your organization to implement diversity/equity/inclusion strategies and understanding local, state, and federal HR compliance are the keys to success!
Employers are faced with many challenges in making the best hiring decisions for their organizations. When considering an applicant’s adverse background, there are several factors that must be taken into
consideration including a complete individualized assessment. With over 80 million people with a criminal record, and 600,000 people released for jail/prison daily, it is critical for employers to offer these individuals a second chance at life.
There have been laws passed in several states regarding second and fair chance hiring. There has also been attention given at a federal level concerning individuals with prior convictions. Check your specific state(s) to ensure you are following local and state guidelines before making an adverse hiring decision. Ensuring that you are compliant in all employment aspects from the application through decision is critical to your organizational success!
