Using Criminal History Records in Hiring: CCCCO Policy Guidance
The Chancellor for the California Community Colleges issued groundbreaking Policy Guidance intended to expand hiring for qualified students, faculty and staff with criminal records. The Policy Guidance accompanies the legal advisory issued on December 31, 2018. A robust fair chance hiring policy positions the community colleges and districts to expand their applicant pools to compete effectively for talented, qualified, and motivated employees. We are proud to have worked with the National Employment Law Project and the Stanford Criminal Justice Center to support the Chancellor in these important efforts.
