Navigating the Labor Market if You’ve Been Court Involved
If you’ve been court involved in the past: know the facts and the responsibilities of New York State employers.
The Doe Fund recently published an excellent guide aimed at New York State employers to outline and articulate the facts and responsibilities of employers when interviewing and considering job candidates who have been involved in the criminal justice system. I think knowing the facts is really important as a jobseeker, and I would encourage individuals to read this guide to have a better sense of how employers need to act. It will give you the data and information you’ll need to make sure you are getting fair and equal treatment.
