Nearly one in three U.S. adults—70 million Americans—has a criminal record. Having even a minor criminal record, such as a misdemeanor or an arrest without conviction, can present obstacles to employment. This collaborative project involves students, staff, and faculty working together to remove barriers to employment for people with criminal records in Tompkins County Jail through a multifaceted educational program focusing on employment laws and rights related to a criminal record, covering federal, state, and local laws. The legal education and employment rights training, developed by a former prosecutor and an employment attorney, enhances participants’ knowledge of what is on their criminal record, teaches options for record correction, sealing, or certificates of relief, and informs them about their rights when a background check is undertaken by an employer. ILR undergraduate assistants will analyze administrative data collected at the end of the training to determine what impact, if any, the training has on job seeking behaviors, knowledge of employment rights, and pursuit of some form of record clearance.
