CA Amends Labor Code to Prohibit Employers from Using Juvenile Records in Employment Decision

Effective Jan. 1, 2017, the governor of California signed a bill in September that amends the state's Labor Code to prohibit employers from considering some juvenile records for employment purposes, including arrests that did not result in conviction, a referral to or participation in any pretrial or post-trial diversion program, and convictions that were dismissed or sealed. Employers still can inquire about arrest histories and health care facilities still can determine eligibility based upon the type of arrest history.
