New Protections for Jobseekers and Tenants in DC!

Wednesday, Nov. 15, 2017, 11 a.m.

Did you know that:
  • Most employers in D.C. are not allowed to ask about criminal records during the job search?  
  • As of October 1, 2017, new laws in D.C. prevent landlords from asking about criminal records during the housing application process and prevent employers from asking about credit history during the job application process? 
Join Neighborhood Legal Services Program for a 1.5 hour informational workshop about three recent laws in DC that protect tenants and jobseekers:
  1. The Fair Criminal Record Screening Amendment Act
  2. The Fair Credit in Employment Act of 2016
  3. The Fair Criminal Record Screening Act for Housing of 2016
Lawyers will be onsite after the presentation to give one-on-one information and referrals.
