On October 14, 2017, Governor Jerry Brown signed Assembly Bill 1008, which will add a section to the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) containing new state-wide restrictions on an employer’s ability to make pre-hire and personnel decisions based on an individual’s criminal history, including a significant and far reaching “ban-the-box” component. AB 1008, which is effective on January 1, 2018, continues the recent flurry of criminal background legislation activity in California, including new statewide regulations on the consideration of criminal records in employment decisions and the City of Los Angeles’s recent ban-the-box law, which also mandates an individualized assessment of an applicant’s criminal history prior to any employment decision based on a criminal record.
California employers with at least five employees should attend this important webinar to understand the finer points of what is lawful and what is unlawful during the application and criminal history background check process. The presenters will explore considerations regarding policies, procedures, and other documents related to the screening process (e.g., job applications, offer letters, guidelines for recruiters, etc.).
