  •  Arrest or POI vs. charge or conviction (0+ / 0-)

    Sometimes employers ask if the prospective employee has ever been arrested or identified as a "person of interest."  An individual can be arrested or named as a "person of interest" but never charged with a crime or convicted of anything.    Shouldn't be relevant in most cases.

    •  OK, I agree with you there. (0+ / 0-)

      But convictions, I think, are fair game.

      Charged but acquitted shouldn't be fair game, but it's a matter of public record, so I don't know how you keep an employer from looking at such a record and making a judgment based on that, privately to himself.
