As an HR professional, developing Fair Chance Hiring best policies and procedures is essential for your organization.
Fair Chance Hiring policies not only ensure compliance with employee rights legislation but also protect your organization from legal liability and discrimination lawsuits.

Fair Chance hiring is built on the premise that everyone, regardless of their background, has the right to be fairly assessed for a role they are qualified for. People with past convictions face many barriers to employment, but people deserve more than just one chance.

Research shows that candidates with prior convictions make strong employees who may stay at your organization longer, advance faster and contribute to the organization’s goals. Implementing Fair Chance policies is a key step toward inclusivity with profound social impact for not only people with past convictions but also for future generations and the entire community.

As employers, we have significant work ahead of us to bring about true diversity and access to employment for everyone. Employers possess a unique opportunity to upend unfair and unethical systems and to change hearts and minds around the treatment of people with criminal records.
