California Fair Chance Act (FCA) Packet
If California employers, haven’t done so already, they will need to make changes to their background check and criminal history review process thanks to the Fair Chance Act (FCA). The FCA, also known as “Ban the Box,” is a California law meant to ensure workers with convictions are more fairly considered for jobs. This means California employers may not ask about conviction history on job applications. They must wait until after they have made a conditional job offer to a candidate to run a conviction background check.
This packet includes guidance for hiring and the law regarding considering criminal history; job application and advertisement requirements; a sample conditional offer of employment and criminal history inquiry; templates for assessing and notifying of adverse actions; forms for withdrawing an offer and much more (includes Local ordinances in Los Angeles and San Francisco); as well as guidance on obtaining background checks and all forms and templates to comply with FCRA and ICRA.
