Hire One

Research by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and other experts shows more employers are giving another chance to hard-working people with criminal backgrounds. It’s a sign that hiring trends and societal biases are shifting.

Companies see the skills, experience & loyalty justice-involved individuals bring to a business. By considering individuals with less than perfect records companies broaden their talent pool and strengthen the economy.

Nearly one in three adults in the U.S. has a criminal conviction, which means that the individual is labeled as having a criminal background or record. These labels too often establish stigmas that create barriers to employment.

FACTS: Employment is key to reducing recidivism. It is time to revamp hiring practices and open recruitment efforts to include those with criminal records.

We are proud to support President Biden’s #SecondChanceMonth Proclamation and hope that employers will give our clients a #SecondChance through employment. www.csosa.gov/hire-one

General information

CSOSA assumed the adult probation function from the D.C. Superior Court and the parole supervision function from the D.C. Board of Parole (which has been dissolved). The Revitalization Act transferred the parole adjudication function to the U.S. Parole Commission. CSOSA also includes the D.C. Pretrial Services Agency (PSA) within its framework. Although PSA is an independent entity within CSOSA, the two agencies share some support functions and transmit their budgets to Congress together.
