decisions based on the arrest records of their job applicants. Importantly, any decision regarding the exclusion of an applicant due to previous arrest information should be made independently and should not be related to the job considering the conviction records. Several court rulings have held that rather than slamming employment opportunities for applicants with prior sentences, the seriousness and cause of the offenses should be considered.

Surname 2 The individual was convicted of a 2 nd -degree murder, which is a serious crime according to the law. Since the transportation company had a subcontract, this indicates that the bigger company was enforcing them to employ people who had been convicted of criminality that had nothing to do with violence. The conviction of the man in question was discernibly gang-related and with intensity. Therefore, this has a strong relationship with the job he has applied for since he is transporting passengers with mental and physical disabilities. Markedly, the commission for employment does consider the period when a crime occurred. In this case, the crime happened long ago when he was 15 years and has never committed a crime since then.

Similarly, the court should consider if the criminal conduct of the driver has influenced any unacceptable behaviors or work on the current job.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
