Oftentimes, the residents intended to benefit from local development projects are left out of the employment opportunities that arise from said projects. First source hiring ordinances, contract clauses, and related agreements aim to rectify this issue by providing employment opportunities to residents living within communities most directly impacted by local development projects. This brief outlines the problems addressed by first source hiring initiatives (i.e. unemployment, crime, traffic congestion) and the legal challenges associated with first source hiring.
