We share information and real stories from employers and HR professionals who have hired qualified people with arrest or conviction records.
A Good Hire: Resources for Finding Undiscovered Talent is a project of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights of the San Francisco Bay Area and the National Employment Law Project. This is part of a public education campaign to raise awareness among hiring decision-makers about the untapped talent that is overlooked when employers screen out people with past records of arrests or convictions. A Good Hire provides information about “fair chance” hiring practices that will allow help employers reach this untapped pool of talent.
A Good Hire is one part of a larger effort to engage the employer community as a means of affecting the overarching economic environment in which people with records are struggling to succeed.
