New Michigan Law allows for more leniency on businesses to hire parolees!

Back in December 2014, Governor Snyder signed legislation to help better connect parolees with employment prospects, in efforts to reduce the chance that they will return to prison. The law became effective January 1, 2015.

House Bills 5216-5218, sponsored by state Rep. Klint Kesto, John Walsh and Harvey Santana, remove certain barriers to employment for parolees by requiring the Department of Corrections to provide parolees with “certificates of employability” specifying completed educational programs, conduct history and work record. The bills also mandate that ‘a record of incarceration cannot be used to establish lack of moral character during the job licensing process and protect employers from possible lawsuits based on their decision to hire an ex-offender.’

Now that this new law is in effect… How can you or your business benefit from it? What incentives are offered by participating? What are the pros and cons?
