LOS ANGELES COUNTY

FAIR CHANCE HIRING PLEDGE

We applaud the growing number of public and private sector organizations nationwide who are taking action to ensure that all Americans have the opportunity to succeed, including individuals who have had contact with the criminal justice system. In Los Angeles County and across the nation, nearly one in three adults have a criminal record. Many justice-involved individuals have been shown to make great employees. It makes good business sense to hire them. We therefore believe that it is critical to remove unnecessary barriers that prevent these individuals from gaining access to employment, training, education and other basic tools required for success in life.

We are committed to complying with the California Fair Chance Act and to providing justice-involved individuals, a fair chance to participate and to thrive in the American economy by promoting fair chance hiring practices.
