Project Rebound at Cal State San Bernardino is joining with campus and community organizations to present a virtual workshop focusing on the California Fair Chance Act.
“Employment After Incarceration: Know your Rights Training for People with Records” will take place on Friday, June 12, from noon-3 p.m. online, and is open to people with records and service providers. Register for the workshop at its Eventbrite page.
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 feature a breakdown on the hiring process, including:
- How to assert your rights under AB 1008;
- What the hiring process should be like, presented by lawyers and advocates; and
- An opportunity to meet advocates who are working to ensure employers in the Inland Empire follow the law and open doors to employment for people with records.
The schedule includes an introduction to the Inland Empire Fair Chance Coalition, a presentation on “Legal Aid at Work,” a question-and-answer panel, and breakouts for legal advice.
For more information, see the workshop Eventbrite page.
More information on the state law can be found online at What is the California Fair Chance Act? on the Inland Empire Fair Chance Coalition website, or on the state Department of Fair Employment and Housing website.
