Course Description

Fair Chance hiring is an initiative that seeks to offer individuals with criminal records greater access to employment opportunities.

In the United States, nearly 70 million Americans have some type of criminal record that could affect their ability to find a job. At present, 37 states and over 250 municipalities have enacted fair chance or “ban-the-boxlaws to address this issue, with more states joining the movement.

Recent trends highlight the importance of fair chance hiring for several reasons:

    • Compliance: Non-compliance with fair chance hiring laws can lead to legal repercussions.
    • Talent Acquisition: A diverse and inclusive workforce fosters innovation and improves employee engagement. Fair chance hiring practices help attract top talent.
    • Employer Branding: Companies with a reputation for fair hiring practices stand out in a competitive market.

Becoming a Fair Chance employer means that you base your employment decisions on job applicants’ qualifications rather than solely on their criminal history.

This webinar is perfect for HR professionals who want to:

    • Lead the way in building a strong talent pipeline.
    • Minimize legal risks associated with hiring practices.
    • Future-proof their organization with a diverse and inclusive workforce.

Our webinar will explore how your organization can create and implement Fair Chance hiring policies, focusing on the benefits of a more inclusive workforce and providing actionable steps to ensure compliance with current laws and best practices.
