Spokane weighs measure for ‘fair chance’ hiring

…if the proposed ordinance is approved, employers in Spokane won’t be able to use criminal conviction or arrest records to make employment decisions until a potential employee has been interviewed.

The proposed ordinance, set to be discussed at Monday’s council meeting, also says employers in Spokane can’t advertise job openings in a way that excludes anyone with a criminal history.
