New Criminal Background Regulations, New Burdens for Employers

April 20, 2017  |  From HRCalifornia Extra

​California’s Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) issued new regulations on employers’ use of criminal background information in employment decisions. The regulations were recently approved by the Office of Administrative Law (OAL) and take effect July 1, 2017.

The new regulations create additional burdens for employers, and the California Chamber of Commerce asked both the DFEH and the OAL to reject the regulations on numerous grounds.​
