Background Checks: The Impact of Criminal Cases and DCF Records on Job Applicants

06/23/2014 - 12:30 PM to 01:30 PM
Obtaining employment can often be a difficult and distressing process. This process has become more concerning for job applicants, as employers increasingly rely on records from commercial background check companies and the Department of Children and Family Services (DCF) to evaluate candidates.
