Statement from Kathryn Wylde, President & CEO of the Partnership for New York City, on New NYC Criminal Background Check Law

“Employers are struggling to keep up with new city laws and regulations, including the prohibition on criminal background checks before making a job offer, which goes into effect tomorrow (October 27). The Human Rights Commission is, however, initiating a rule making process that invites employer input, so this is a positive step that will hopefully result in a process that minimizes the burden on businesses and job applicants.”
