Philadephia Updates Fair Criminal Records Screening Standards

Effective March 14, 2016, Employers in the City of Philadelphia will no longer be able to ask job candidates questions about previous criminal convictions or to conduct a criminal background check until after a conditional offer of employment is made. The updated ordinance also specifically prohibits the use of a form that includes a question regarding criminal convictions - even if it instructs the candidates not to answer until after an offer of employment is made.
