Employers will no longer be able to ask about an applicant’s criminal history

AB 1008 (McCarty) – Criminal History Background Checks for Job Applicants – Signed

This bill will prohibit an employer from inquiring into a job applicant’s criminal history until after a conditional job offer is made. This is the so-called “ban-the-box” law which refers to the criminal history box on job applications. AB 1008 will take effect on January 1, 2018.
