New FAQ - Does the ordinance require a business to hire someone with a criminal history?

Based on feedback, we've added a new Frequently Asked Question:

Does the ordinance require a business to hire someone with a criminal history?

No. A Fair Chance Hiring Ordinance does not require an employer to hire an applicant with a criminal history if the applicant is deemed unsuitable or unqualified for the position. It only prohibits asking questions about or conducting a criminal history check on a job application, during an interview, or prior to a conditional job offer being given if the consideration of the applicant’s criminal history results in unlawful discrimination.
