Both scheduled for noon, the first is set for Monday, March 1, with Brandon Butler, deputy director of Fair Employment and Housing, and the second for Wednesday, March 3, with Project Rebound staff. Both will take place on Zoom.
The California Fair Chance Act prohibits employers to ask job seekers and landlords to ask rental applicants who were formerly incarcerated to disclose their conviction history. The focus of both luncheons is to discuss what AB-1008 is as well as the rights it provides to those seeking employment.
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.
