Introduction From The Editor

This edition of our monthly e-newsletter includes “San Francisco to make it illegal for Employers/Landlords to ask about criminal convictions”, discussing San Francisco’s attempt to prohibit landlords, city contractors, and private employers from questioning individuals about their previous arrests and conviction histories before determining their suitability for jobs or housing.

Our legal alert covers the passing of Georgia’s Illegal Immigration Reform and Enforcement Act. This Act will require private employers to register and use the federal government’s E-Verify system prior to the issuance or renewal of business licenses and occupational tax certificates.

Finally, our tip of the month explains why employers in specific industries (food processing and healthcare) must conduct Tuberculosis testing on all new hires.

Please forward our e-newsletter to friends and colleagues who may benefit from our published information.

Director of Operations/Editor
