As a result of their recent hiring, many new hires have been made by tech giants including Facebook, LinkedIn, Microsoft, Google and Yahoo.
In the past, these companies have required their employees to prove they have no criminal history, are clean, and are able to work on a team of four.
This is often the case, but some companies are now turning to a different approach, with the goal of making it easier for their employees with criminal records to join the workforce.
The new policy will make it easier to find jobs for criminal records by making it harder to be considered for a job.
“As employers, we have always valued the diversity of the applicant pool and have always strived to find qualified candidates with outstanding work ethic, intelligence, and personal characteristics,” the tech giants said in a joint statement.
“With this change, we will now be using the criminal history information provided by employers in our hiring process.
This change will be phased in over the next few months.”
The change will take effect in May 2018.
It will apply to all new hires starting with May 1, 2018, according to the companies statement.
Employers will also be required to verify whether a person is qualified to fill a specific job vacancy.
The tech giants statement also noted that they are working with federal regulators to develop a standardized system to track the progress of this program.
