NYC Fair Chance Act: 6 Ways Employers Can Stay Compliant

Alex Krokos

The New York City Fair Chance Act went into effect on October 27. The Act addresses employers’ responsibilities as they relate to criminal background checks. The law is designed to delay criminal background screening to allow candidates an opportunity to interview and be considered for jobs before potential elimination by a background check.

Under the Fair Chance Act, New York City employers are prohibited from inquiring or obtaining any statement about an applicant’s criminal background until after a conditional offer of employment has been made.
