California FEHC Criminal History Regulations Infographic
Employment Screening Resources® (ESR) – a global provider of background checks headquartered in the San Francisco, CA-area – has created an infographic for the “California Fair Employment & Housing Council’s (FEHC) Consideration of Criminal History in Employment Decisions Regulations” that identify ways in which employers can face liability when using the criminal history of candidates (job applicants or employees) in hiring and other employment decisions. The new regulations take effect July 1, 2017.
The FEHC – the agency that puts into effect regulations that implement the state’s employment and housing anti-discrimination laws – has adopted guidelines promoted by federal agencies including the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), which issued updated “Enforcement Guidance on the Consideration of Arrest and Conviction Records in Employment Decisions Under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964” in April 2012.
