On March 19, 2012, the Mayor of the District of Columbia signed the Unemployed Anti-Discrimination Act of 2012 (the "UADA"), which prohibits employers and employment agencies from discriminating against job applicants based on their unemployment status. After the required period for Congressional review, the UADA is poised to be come the nation's first law to make it illegal to fail to hire an applicant based on his or her status as "unemployed."
This briefing will give you all the information you need to comply with the UADA. We will discuss:
Who is covered by the law;
What "status as unemployed" mean;
What acts are permitted and prohibited under the law; and
Strategies for compliance.
Come and learn what you need to know about how your recruiting processes will be affected by this new law.
