Business Training Series: Fair Criminal Record Screening Amendment Act

Last Date:

Effective December 17, 2014, the Fair Criminal Record Screening Amendment Act prohibits covered DC employers from inquiring into a job applicant's criminal background before extending a conditional offer of employment. Covered employers must also have a legitimate business reason for revoking a conditional job offer based on an applicant's criminal background. The DC Office of Human Rights (OHR) accepts and investigates complaints that allege violations of this Act, and when violations are found, monetary penalties can be imposed.
