New online tool fights discrimination against California job-seekers with a criminal record

 

California’s Fair Chance Act prevents most employers from asking a job applicant about their criminal record until after a job offer has been made to the applicant. This enables the applicant to earn a job offer based on their abilities, rather than assumptions about their past. 

Understanding the provisions of the Act, and how the provisions apply in particular situations can be difficult for job-seekers and employers. 

The new online solution developed by CRD in collaboration with Neota and the University of California, Irvine School of Law, presents an easy-to-use interface to anonymously identify circumstances and assess whether the user may have experienced a violation of the Act.

The solution interviews the user and produces a narrowly tailored report that explains the user’s rights and flags any specific factors that indicate that a violation of the Act may have occurred. If warranted, the report also guides the use on how to file a complaint to the CRD against the employer. 

You can learn more about how CRD uses technology as part of their toolset to promote access to justice and combat discrimination on their website. Learn more about Neota solutions in our solution gallery.
