Fair Chance hiring considers an applicant’s qualifications first, without the stigma of a conviction or arrest record.

Fair Chance Business Certified, businesses must:

  • Remove all questions about criminal records from the initial job application form.
  • Delay asking questions about criminal records until the applicant is given a conditional offer.
  • Give applicants a chance to see any background checks you run.

The certification is free and open to any small business in the South. Certified businesses receive a free window sticker, and resources for creating effective fair chance hiring policies.
