AN ACT TO PROHIBIT STATE AGENCIES FROM INQUIRING INTO OR CONSIDERING THE CRIMINAL RECORD OF A JOB APPLICANT UNTIL THE APPLICANT HAS BEEN SELECTED FOR AN INTERVIEW.
Enacts new GS 126-18.1 to require that a state agency refrain from considering an applicant’s criminal record or criminal history until after the applicant has been selected for an interview by the employer. This provision does not apply to the Department of Public Safety when it otherwise has a duty to conduct a criminal history record check. A state agency may inform applicants that a particular criminal history record can result in disqualification for a position. Effective July 1, 2019.
