Employers are diversifying their workforce and addressing systemic inequalities within their ranks. Expanding their talent pool to include people with criminal records is becoming increasingly attractive. We educate employers about their legal obligations and responsibilities with respect to employment of people who have been involved in the criminal legal system. Education includes relevant Ban the Box statutes, Human Rights laws, and federal laws―including Title VII and the Fair Credit Reporting Act. We also train employers about the background screening process and how to interpret a background check with respect to criminal history and consumer credit issues. To learn more about our programs, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
