Gov. Quinn Directs State Agencies to Remove Question About Arrests on Applications


Governor Pat Quinn has directed state agencies to no longer include a question on job applications, asking prospective employees if they have a criminal record.

 

Quinn says applicants should be evaluated on their merits, instead of being pre-emptively excluded because of past run-ins with the law.

 

Agencies could still run background checks and inquire about criminal convictions later in the hiring process.

 

But Republican lawmaker Tom Cross… a candidate for state treasurer… thinks the policy is a bad idea, and says the people doing the hiring for the state should get full disclosure at the beginning of the process.
