Free ASA Webinar Today—Become a Second-Chance Employer

Don’t miss the ASA webinar “Second-Chance Hiring: Creating Opportunities for Candidates,” presented by the ASA industrial section and office–administrative section. It takes place today from 3 to 4 p.m. Eastern time. Most employers say that workers with criminal records perform just as well as, or better than, other employees. Find out how changing your hiring practices to stop excluding people with criminal records can give those candidates a second chance at employment.

This webinar is free to all attendees and qualifies for continuing education hours toward ASA certification renewal. To learn more and to register, visit
