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.
