HB 5334 Background Fairness Act

HB 5334 is the Employer Background Fairness Act sponsored by Rep. Sonya Harper and Sen. Jacqueline Collins.

Employers are denying people jobs because of a criminal record even when it has nothing to do with fitness for the job. HB 5334 creates reasonable standards and practices for the use of criminal records in hiring.
