Ban the Box wins in CA, takes effect January 1


California’s AB 1008 which passed the legislature and was signed into law by the governor, taking effect January 1, 2018, is California’s version of the ban the box movement which seeks to ban asking an applicant for employment about their criminal history prior to interview, initial screening, and making a conditional offer of employment. The new law also requires certain notifications to an applicant for employment who is rejected after being asked about their criminal history and any subsequent screening.

To comply with the new law I have revised a series of documents which I recommend for my clients to use in the hiring process. Keep in mind that California law is more stringent by far than federal law and violations of the Investigative Consumer Credit Reporting Act can lead to $10,000 minimum civil penalties for even technical violations.

If you or your clients need to use my services for background investigations in the hiring process you can now find my compliant documents formatted for download as Microsoft word documents, open office documents, or in PDF format at: J.B. Tucker & Associates – Resources

If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact me. If you have any problems downloading the forms I can email them to you in any of these formats.

About Jan Tucker

The Detectives Diary is an innovative tool combining Private Investigation and Journalism. In 1984, Steve Harvey's Los Angeles Times "Around the Southland" Column entitled Jan Tucker's program of providing low-cost "Opposition Research" services to indigent and working class candidates for public office, "Take Cover: Hired Mudslinger Rides into Town." A 1996 Los Angeles Times article by Henry Chu carried a sub-headline identifying Tucker as a "P.R. Guru." In November 2012, Tucker became Criminal Justice Columnist for Counter Punch Magazine and a commentator for Black Talk Radio. As a private investigator since 1979 and a former First Vice President of Newspaper Guild Local 69, Tucker takes these skills to a new level in the pages of the Detectives Diary with insightful and unique exposures and analysis of history and current events.
