I'm a (proud) Hawaiian transplant, and one thing us islanders do well in #Hawaii is honoring Aloha Friday traditions. Aloha shirts for the office, and a general vibe where there is no doubt it's FRIDAY. What is your work Friday tradition? How do you close out your work week?

I received a letter about my PUA saying I need to prove I was affected by COVID. I’ve sent an appeal with the following statement; I was let go from my job around February 2020. I was unable to work because the primary care doctor of the person I was caring for told me her patient was high risk for COVID and immune compromised, because of that the doctor advised me not to leave the house, because if I did I would risk harming her patient and potentially killing him due to COVID exposure. The person I was caring for recently passed away on February 11, and I've since been looking for a job and can give documents for proof, death certificate and proof of looking for employment. #unemployment #pua #advice #hawaii #pandemic

City Manager Shawn Sherrouse has implemented a "Ban the Box" process that will remove the questions about prior criminal convictions for job applicants!!

The new process goes into effect today, February 1st.

Ban the Box legislation started in 1998 with Hawaii being the first state to pass a law restricting employers from inquiring about a candidate’s criminal background prior to an offer being extended.

Since then, legislation has been enacted in 33 states and more than 150 municipalities. The state of Florida has not implemented similar legislation but several cities and counties within the state have Ban the Box initiatives including Tampa, Orlando, Gainesville, Jacksonville, Tallahassee and Sarasota, just to name a few.

The questions about criminal history will be removed from the City’s initial hiring process and potential job candidates that may have a criminal offense in their background will not be judged at the time of submitting their application.

Instead, criminal background checks that are part of the hiring process when a potential candidate is being considered for a position.

Do you think more states and towns would Ban the Box?

Thanks to the Office of Hawaiian Affairs (OHA), the legislature has passed a bill to reduce the look back period on convictions - meaning people who served their time have a better chance at getting employment. #hawaii #secondchances #record

Glad to hear that [Starbucks employees in #hawaii are getting paid for a month] (https://www.staradvertiser.com/2020/03/30/hawaii-news/businesses-continue-changing-with-growing-coronavirus-outbreak/) whether they work or not. Looking forward to seeing Times and Foodland figure out fair employee benefits, too!!
