Obama administration creates policy to sue businesses that donít hire ex-convicts.
Saying that consideration of arrest and conviction records have a disparate impact on blacks because they are 7 times more likely to have an arrest record than whites,Obama has set into action new hiring guidelines making it illegal to purposefully not hire someone because they have an arrest record.The Obama administration stated that because blacks are 7 times more likely to have criminal convictions than whites,employers refusing to hire convicts are disproportionally targeting blacks and these businesses will therefore be sued by the attorney general if they don`t comply and refuse to hire criminals.

Re: Obama administration creates policy to sue businesses that donít hire ex-convicts.
People could make all kinds of laws for everyone else, but exempt themselves

Lead by example.....
Hire a couple of child molesters to work in WH maintenance
Hire peso files in Secret Service

The truth of the matter is we do not have a president....
He cannot prove his eligibility
So, if arrested because of any of his laws, who has the Uthority to make those laws? All should be null and void.

Hell, I got arrested for a DUI and possession of marijuana 16 years ago, and still won't get hired because of background checks. I'm white and all for it.

IN NC that shit will stay on your record for the rest of your life, even after you have served your time. Makes it hard to find a good job. I knew a lot of guys who have spent time in the hoosegow. Some of them come out and get their disability, others try to get their lives back together. But this state is fucked up. They penalize you fro everything you have ever done,it seems.

Re: Obama administration creates policy to sue businesses that donít hire ex-convicts.
I do believe people can change and that there are some decent people that just f'd up and are trying hard to get it together. But employers do background checks to weed out felons because of LAWYERS. How can an employer know if they have the real deal type of person who is really trying to live straight and when they have the person who will rape an employee or slap a customer or rob them blind? They can't know this, so for liability issues alone, they have to weed them out. If there is an incident and the victim/s sue and it is found that the guy knowingly hired a felon and put everyone at risk, his business will be destroyed by the damages he will have to pay out.

I mean, what are business owners to do? They're fucked either way. Which, I'm guessing, is the goal. If it's impossible to do business due to the never-ending catch-22 rules/regs, you won't have private-owned businesses.

I agree with that. I'm not a felon, but they don't hire you for misdemeanors either. Jobs are slim pickings nowadays, so you're screwed even if you got busted for pot 20 years ago. I say we do as the UK does. After 7 years, your record is sealed unless you get in trouble again, felons excluded.

If I were an employer, I would not want to hire anyone who committed a crime that harmed an innocent person. Though I would consider it if the crime was not particularly heinous, occurred many years ago, and reputable people could vouch that the person had truly cleaned up his act.

And I would not have any problems with hiring someone who got busted for committing a victimless crime.

Re: Obama administration creates policy to sue businesses that donít hire ex-convicts.
from the article..

Bovard points out that the ďbiggest bombshellĒ in the new guidelines is that businesses complying with state or local laws requiring background checks can still be sued by the EEOC.

That came to light when the EEOC took action against G4S Secure Solutions, which provides guards for nuclear power plants and other sensitive sites, for refusing to hire a twice-convicted thief as a security guard ó even though Pennsylvania state law forbids hiring people with felony convictions as security officers.

I'm not hiring your ex-con voters, Barry. Sue me, you fascist Kenyan jackass.

And, I'm not talking about a 10 year old DUI or pot possession charge. I've hired plenty of those guys. I'm talking about the people Barry wants me to hire. You know, those gangbangers and petty criminal types.

That has never been the problem. A business owner should be able to hire whom ever he chooses. Obama is trying to legislate behavior ... it never as worked. So an employer can refuse to hire you for the color of your hair but not for your character? These decisions should be free of threat, especially from a douche like Holder, and the person offering the position should get to hire the best applicant for the task. Be a felony bank robber or embezzler and make application at Brinks Armored Car Service. They probably won't tell you your past is keeping you from being employed there .. but it will, and they won't care if you are traumatized or not.
