Better People applauds Facebook for creating an application process that is not biased against people with legal histories. After a recent tour of San Quentin State Prison in California, Facebook Co-founder Mark Zuckerberg took to his Facebook page to share his experience and call for prison reform.
In reaction to a comment to this post, Zuckerberg replied, “We actually don’t ask about your criminal record on your job application here at Facebook. That way we don’t bias against people who’ve made a mistake in their past, and we can help give them a second chance.”
Better People encourages all employers to remove questions about legal history from their application process.
