This week, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) issued
new guidance on the lawful use of arrest and conviction records in making
employment decisions. The use of such records by employers may constitute
unlawful discrimination of the Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
According to the EEOC, the guidance "discusses various scenarios that an
employer might encounter when considering the arrest or conviction history
of a current or prospective employee."

The above was shamelessly copied from NPELRA's Alert on EEOC criminal
background checks, dated 4/25/12.
