Project Rebound at Cal State San Bernardino is joining with campus and community organizations to present an employer training workshop focusing on the California Fair Chance Act. “Fair Chance Act: Employer Training” will take place on Tuesday, March 3, from 10 a.m.-noon in the Santos Manuel Student Union, room 106A. The training session is open to all businesses and is free to attend. Complimentary parking will be provided in Lot D. Registration can be done online at the Fair Chance Act: Employer Training Eventbrite webpage. The California Fair Chance Act (AB 1008) prohibits employers to ask job seekers to disclose their conviction history prior to providing a conditional offer. The training session will give employers the opportunity to learn how to be in compliance with the state law. The training session will include a breakdown on the hiring process with a lawyer from the California Department of Fair Housing and Employment, and an opportunity to meet with people who were impacted by the law and Fair Chance advocates who will discuss the importance of fair hiring practices to improve the health, safety and economy of the Inland Empire. More information on the state law can be found online at California Fair Chance Act (AB 1008) – “Ban the Box” FAQs on the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing website. Presenting the training session with Project Rebound are the CSUSB School of Social Work, the Osher Adult Re-Entry Center at CSUSB, and the Inland Empire Fair Chance Coalition.
