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

Monday, June 23, 2014 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA

 

Description:

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. A disposition in a criminal case or an investigation by DCF - even those with favorable outcomes- may become a barrier to employment for many individuals.

It is increasingly important for attorneys representing clients, particularly indigent clients, in criminal cases or care and protection cases to understand the impact cases may have on clients' employment prospects. This program will discuss how records may be available to employers to evaluate job applicants, and what advice attorneys can provide to clients about the impact of criminal or C&P cases on future job applications.
