September 6: Webcast - Fair-Chance Employment Practices: Opening Job Opportunities for People with Records #MCLE

An estimated 70 million people in the United States—nearly one in three adults—have a criminal record. Too often the stigma of having a record presents an insurmountable hurdle to finding employment for jobseekers. As the national movement for criminal justice reform accelerates, learn about the efforts across the country to dismantle barriers to employment and advance job opportunities.
Please join Senior Staff Attorneys Nayantara Mehta and Michelle Natividad Rodriguez from the National Employment Law Project as they:
  • Cover the latest national developments in the movement toward fair chance employment;
  • Highlight policy trends and the latest challenges surrounding fair chance employment; and
  • Explore how on-demand companies, like Uber, fall short when it comes to compliance with the civil rights and consumer laws that regulate criminal background checks for employment.  
  • Save the date and don’t miss this important free presentation.
