Companies Expanding Employment Opportunities

More than 100 companies have announced that they are now willing to hire individuals previously convicted of a felony offense. The companies range from McDonald’s to the New York Times and also include American Express, B F Goodrich, Dunkin Donuts, Hilton Hotels, the Salvation Army, Target and others.

It has been reported that some, but not all, of these companies are willing to hire individuals convicted of a sex offense. California law prohibits employers from discriminating against a registrant solely because he is required to register as a sex offender pursuant to Penal Code Section 290.

I’m glad to see common sense when companies are willing to give ppl a second chance.
Tho that last part about Cali law prohibits discrimination of 290’s? I’ve been term’d 3 almost 4 times because of my Label. Another fun fact my P.D left out as I agreed to a Plea.

this must be a joke… There are companies on this list that are shutting down or in bankruptcy.. so this list must be old… hell it looks like the same one that was posted on a wall in the probation office

How old is this list? Pick and Save has been Big Lots for a few years now. Where is the source of this list? I don’t need it now, but maybe in the future.
That’s great they still have the tax credit. My first employer after my conviction received a tax credit, which I am sure helped in getting me hired. If I can find someone wbo knows marketing, I may be able to have enough steady work to hire someone myself.

I got my CDL (class A commercial driver license) and was hired by a small local company that didn’t ask too many questions. They pretty much only care about DUIs, suspensions, and accidents. If any of you like to drive, you might consider trucking school. Even if it’s not your passion, it’s not a bad job, and you’ll still be making well above minimum wage.

Check Craig’s list for your area, they list trucking companies. Also check the registry to see where other people work.

Because a lot of Boeing’s work is government related, it may be hard to find work with them if the work is for a government contract since Federal Law and felons working on government contracts is usually forbidden. Sure, Boeing has a commercial aircraft division, where military contracts also reside for commercial base aircraft used in military applications, e.g. KC-46 based on B767, but the States of WA, KS and SC are hard for RC’s to live in and work for Boeing where they have a large commercial aircraft presence.

This list appears to be dated and something I have seen online for years through various websites. Saying they will and doing so are two different things.

Unfortunately, while law says it’s unlawful to deny employment, based on conviction/registration, it leaves the burden of proof on us. I’ve been on the registry since ’93.

I’ve been terminated twice and I’ve lost count of job offers rescinded dues to registration status.

One made it clear why they were resending the offer, but would not put that statement is writing.

Many of those companies listed either have or are largely in the process of automating the jobs they offer so they no longer need humans.

Does anyone know if other states have a similar bill as CA does in regards to hiring registered citizens?
