Checkr, the background check company, announced it has launched an end-to-end solution for job candidates to complete expungements and clear their criminal records.

This solution, the first of its kind in the industry, removes the complexities and high legal fees typically associated with expungements and unlocks barriers to meaningful employment. This Checkr service will automate the manual process of petitioning a local courthouse to clear someone’s criminal record under local judicial procedures.

“At Checkr, we believe a criminal sentence should not be a life sentence to unemployment. Our expungement solution will help people to expand their opportunities,” Checkr Chief Executive Officer Daniel Yanisse said. “Our easy-to-use solution and the free expungements will allow tens of thousands of candidates to clear their records. We hope to grow the service even further in the coming years and encourage our customers and partners to join us to sponsor more free expungements.”

DHI Group announced that the Company has transferred majority ownership of its eFinancialCareers business (eFC), the world’s leading financial services career site, to eFC’s management team. DHI will retain a 40% equity interest in eFC and have board representation.

“With the disposition of eFC, DHI will be solely focused on the technology career marketplace in the United Statesthrough our two brands Dice and ClearanceJobs,” said Art Zeile, CEO of DHI Group, Inc. “We believe this focus on technologists along with the positive bookings and revenue trends we are experiencing will create greater long-term value for our clients, candidates, employees and shareholders.” 

“With our continued strong bookings momentum in the second quarter, as well as the eFC spinoff announced today, we expect total revenue growth for DHI Group on both a sequential and year-over-year basis for our second quarter ended yesterday,” said Kevin Bostick, Chief Financial Officer.

ERIN, a leading Employee Referral Platform, today announced the launch of ERIN 3.0 for web and mobile. ERIN 3.0 brings innovative features, such as diversity referral incentives, bonus campaigns, policy automations, and expanded international features. The update of the employee referral software allows administrators to further automate their employee referral program and better engage their employees to participate in recruitment, enabling businesses to fill positions faster, with high-quality hires.

ERIN’s new enterprise-focused features include bonus campaigns, diversity incentives, eligibility rules, and dynamic translations. 

The new features now give even more control for businesses to automate their employee referral policies. Companies can now temporarily increase bonuses and run campaigns for hard-to-fill positions, and also further automate bonus eligibility based on management level, job title, and more.
