Obtaining Criminal History

​​​​​Employers should avoid a rule that automatically bars employment to any applicant with a record of criminal conviction. This type of policy may violate local, state and federal law if the conviction is not job-related and the policy has a disparate impact upon a protected class. Strict rules govern when you can obtain criminal history information.​
