Schroeder Quoted on Los Angeles’ ‘Ban-the-Box’ Ordinance

08 March 2017 Hotel Management Magazine News
Partner Don Schroeder was quoted in a Hotel Management article, “How ‘Ban-the-Box' Ordinances Complicate Hiring at Hotels,” covering the success rates of ‘ban-the-box’ ordinances and in what position it places employers.

Schroeder explained: “You want to give people a second chance, that’s the point of this, but being able to ask about certain offenses would prove to be somewhat valuable information for an employer. In some ways, it cuts off [an employer’s] liability for gross negligence if the law prevents them from asking certain questions… but relating to probations, fines, prison stays or parole, it’s really broad not to ask any questions there. If you go to that length, you are tying an employer’s hands.”
