Arrest Records in Employment Decisions




Adler School of Professional Psychology, Institute on Social Exclusion

This mental health impact assessment, or MHIA, focused on a proposal to update the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s (EEOC) Policy Guidance on the Consideration of Arrest Records in Employment Decisions. Having undergone an update for the first time in over twenty years, one proposed change was to prohibit employers from asking about arrests as part of an employee's standard interview process.
