Criminal Records Off Limits in a City in California

The city of Richmond in California has passed an ordinance that prohibits contractors of the city government into asking about the criminal history of job applicants. The move is designed to help improve the chances of employment in the city.

There is a high crime rate at the area which also translates to a higher rate of incarceration. The ordinance should help those with criminal histories to be protected against discrimination.

According to an article from the Wall Street Journal, “ Richmond, with a population of about 100,000, joins 51 other municipalities that have passed similar ordinances, many in the past five years.”
