Some Big Cities Eliminate Criminal History Questions from Job Applications

By: Wallin & Klarich

Employers face many decisions when deciding who to hire for a job. Undoubtedly one of these considerations is whether or not the prospective employee has had a criminal history. Currently many job applications ask criminal history questions. However across the United States, many big cities are starting to eliminate these types of questions.

These changes have been implemented in an effort to prevent those convicted of a crime from being excluded from the workforce. Currently the new hiring policy only applies to public employment. However, even in cities where these questions have been eliminated, criminal background checks in the later hiring stages still exist. Having your record sealed or expunged remains another option for those who want their criminal history concealed.

If you or a loved one need to have your record sealed, it is imperative that you hire an aggressive, experienced criminal defense firm. Hiring an experienced criminal defense law firm can greatly increase your chances of having your petition granted.
