Those who work for a welfare office, a workforce development organization, or are involved in getting recipients of Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) into the workforce know the challenge of finding employment for ex-offenders or individuals with a criminal record. This guide offers several helpful strategies that will improve the employment opportunities for your participants who have criminal histories.

This guide identifies general legal standards that may apply to hiring decisions involving ex-offenders. These standards may vary from state to state and from case to case. You must consult with your legal advisor and/or state Attorney General for specific information about the standards that apply in your state. (Author)
