If you have been arrested and subsequently convicted of a crime, it could impact your future employment. When a candidate applies for any position with a business, the potential employer has the right to conduct background checks. The information gathered from background checks may be used when deciding on your employment eligibility.
In many cases, employers are guilty of deliberately or unknowingly discriminating against candidates with a criminal conviction. There are certain circumstances where rejecting an application is justified based on the nature of a crime. However, there are also Georgia state laws and federal laws that protect the rights of those with a criminal past.
Due to rates of incarceration differing between races and genders, some groups in society are more affected than others. In fact, there are potentially severe issues with how employers interpret the law when deciding on candidate suitability for employment.
