Please click the flashing button below. It will take you to a huge list of employers that offer second chance jobs for felons . There are many companies listed on that page who have pledged to have fair hiring practices when it comes to considering jobs for felons. Companies that have signed the pledge are vowing to make things more equal for felons looking for jobs by adopting "Ban-the-Box. This refers to removal of any questions that relate to an applicant's criminal record on employment applications. The removal of the "Have you ever been convicted...." question does not eliminate the background check, but it offers those who’ve been previously convicted of crimes a chance to be considered for jobs. They also agree to not to inquire about criminal records until the applicant is receiving serious consideration for employment. This will allow employers to meet the person behind the application. When this happens, they can focus on the person and their qualifications rather than something that has happened in the past.
Companies that signed the pledge committed to help make things more equal for people with criminal records have also eliminated the "Have you been convicted of a crime" question from applications. This helps ex-offenders and felons by letting more employers to meet qualified applicants before considering their legal status. Employers get a chance to judge the person, not the criminal record.
With a little hope, this will allow employers to focus on all of the positive things that applicants have going for them instead of criminal records.
The law prohibits most private employers from asking question relating to criminal history until after a job offer is made. Within their companies, they also pledge to offer equal opportunity for training and eligibility for these people for advancement. Good Luck!
