Experts Say...

The Law Offices of Scott A. Miller, serving Long Beach, CA, explain that applicants are protected from past mistakes when seeking employment. "Performing background checks on prospective employees is standard practice for California businesses," the law firm explains. "While employers are free to carry out a background check, they are limited by both state and federal law in how they use the information that a check uncovers." The firm continues, "Not long ago, any criminal conviction or even an arrest record, no matter how old or how minor the crime, would have made it difficult to find employment in California," the law firm says. "Recent changes to the law are designed to help people overcome past transgressions in their lives. Employers are prohibited from using arrest records to make a hiring decision. Employers are also prohibited from considering certain convictions that occurred years ago when considering a prospective employee."
