LMM is proud to be a Fair Chance Employer! Fair chance hiring reduces barriers to job opportunities for people with past-justice involvement and ensures a candidate is considered through a fair lens.
Part of fair chance hiring includes “banning the box.” When employers “ban the box,” it allows individuals to apply for a job and be considered for the position with no initial requirement of sharing their criminal record. This ensures the candidate is reviewed based on their experience, skillset, and character.
Only after the candidate has been considered qualified can their criminal record be requested. At that point, a fair chance employer will take into consideration the time since the prior offense, the type of offense, and any mitigating circumstances. These considerations and the role for which an individual is applying will be reviewed when deciding whether to hire the candidate.
