Most Ban the Box laws provide an opportunity to respond to an initial rejection based on criminal history!
Don’t let your right to respond go to waste! We can help.
Under most Ban the Box laws, including California Ban the Box law, applicants rejected due to their criminal history have a right to respond. The employer cannot outright deny the applicant from employment solely or partially based on conviction history until after considering the applicant’s response.
Under California’s Ban the Box law, the applicant has five days to respond. The applicant can obtain an additional five days after requesting an extension in writing. Generally, the applicant should provide information and evidence demonstrating their fitness for the position, or dispute the accuracy of their conviction history report. Before responding, the applicant should request a copy of the criminal background report utilized in rejecting employment.
