In August 2015 The City of Waco adopted a Fair Chance Hiring Policy to remove delay consideration of criminal record until after a conditional job offer has been made. This allows people to apply and be considered solely for their qualifications and skills, rather than a criminal past. Check out their website waco-texts.com/JOBSfor more information.
