Int 1314-2018 *Public Advocate Jumaane Williams Proposed Int. No. 1314-AProhibiting discrimination based on one’s arrest record, pending criminal accusations or criminal convictions.IntroductionThis bill would extend employment protections for individuals with pending adjournments in contemplation of dismissal (ACDs) and convictions for violations prior to sealing by adding unsealed violations and ACDs to the category of dispositions that may never be considered for the purpose of making employment-related decisions. The bill also prohibits discrimination in licensing against applicants with convictions for violations, even prior to sealing. Additionally, this bill would clarify protections for applicants and employees with pending criminal cases by explicitly requiring an employer to make an individualized assessment of the relationship between the charged conduct and the job, much like what is required for consideration of an individual’s conviction history.Hearing Held by Committee  Action details Not available
