According to an article in Human Resource Executive Online, California has further restricted criminal background checks. California SB530 amends the California Labor Code to prohibit public and private employers from asking job applicants about criminal records that have been expunged, sealed, or dismissed. The bad news for business is that it represents another hurdle with which they must contend. What's worse is that there is still plenty of confusion about what's required of employers under the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's (EEOC) guidelines on criminal background checks. If anything, this underscores that employers must make sure they carefully review their policy on background checks.
