Quinn Orders State Agencies Not To Ask About Criminal Records On Job Applications


Governor Pat Quinn has signed an administrative order that bars state agencies from asking prospective employees on a job application about their criminal record. 

 

The order from Quinn still allows the state to conduct background checks and inquire about criminal offenses later in the hiring process, but the order is intended to give ex-felons more of a chance to compete for state jobs.  The order applies only to state agencies, not to private employers. 

 

But Republican lawmaker Tom Cross… a candidate for state treasurer… says it doesn’t make sense to keep important information away from the people doing the hiring.
