Skip to comments.Obama’s EEOC: We’ll Sue You If You Don’t Hire Criminals
Posted on 02/15/2013 9:29:37 AM PST by Olog-hai
The Obama administrations Equal Employment Opportunity Commission says it should be a federal crime to refuse to hire ex-convicts and threatens to sue businesses that dont employ criminals.
In April, the EEOC unveiled its Enforcement Guidance on the Consideration of Arrest and Conviction Records, which declares that criminal record exclusions have a disparate impact based on race and national origin.
The impetus for this guidance is that black men are nearly seven times more likely than white men to serve time in prison, and therefore refusals to hire convicts disproportionally impact blacks, according to a Wall Street Journal opinion piece by James Bovard, a libertarian author and lecturer whose books include Freedom in Chains: The Rise of the State and the Demise of the Citizen.

Barack has to look out for his base.
This country is more effed each day due to the machinations of the permanent DC liberal/affirmative action bureaucracy that the meteor only missed by 4600 miles
Criminals? Ah, we already have the pre-criminal democrates, never punished for anything, might as well open all the prisons now and overrun the country in pogroms while disarming us... the abuse tempo must increase. Give them the keys to your bank accounts...
So armed robbers are now going to be hired as bank tellers or else???
Obama voters more likely to serve prison time .
At least they are admitting it.
Not worries mate.. The ATM already replaced them.
Meanwhile Rove is destroying his own engine, the conservative base, and RINOs in congress are going in denial, Orwellian and offering zero resistance.
aren’t these the same people who want to crack down on employers hiring illegals?
Obama’s objective is the Destruction of America.
Anybody want to site one of his policies that don’t reflect this goal?
Law says if you cannot be bonded for fidelity coverage, you cannot work for a federally insured financial instituion. I wonder which law they will choose to enforce??
Have any of you ever watched “Death Wish 2”? In the 1982 movie there is a scene at a cocktail party in which one guy advocates that whites should commit more crimes in order to equalize the disparity between the number of black muggers to white. It was treated as a joke but look, now we have the reality, that is exactly what liberals want.
If the SHTF, and it’s 0bama’s gov’t holding on against a country in rebellion,
I’m betting one of the things he does is open all the prisons.
This really shouldn’t be a concern.
With the enacting of ObamaCare, we’ll be lucky if ANYBODY is working in the next few years.
So let’s see here your resume says you have experience in thuggary, bribes, extortion and petty theft. I’m sorry but the only position we have available in in crongress.
Oh, I thought this was the next step in removing our ability to “discriminate.” Most recently it was newcomers like mental illness, including alchoholism, age, and so forth. But turns out this is just an extension of race. Hey, how about the justice department goes to the horse’s mouth? If criminal history “disperately impacts” blacks, then ipso facto lawmakers, cops, DAs, judges, and juries are racist. Try punishing them instead of employers.
We truly are intent on destroying civilization, some of us, aren’t we?
By the way, God damn the person who first taught a judge the term “disparate impact.”
Because stats show...if 0bama had a son he’d look like an exfelon who can’t get a job.
HIS IQ IS OFF THE CHARTS!
what, they want every private business to have a workforce with the morals of the US Congress?
Yep....hire felons at gun stores!
Translation: Politicians need jobs after they retire....
The EEOC sure has gone down hill.
“So lets see here your resume says you have experience in thuggary, bribes, extortion and petty theft. Im sorry but the only position we have available in in crongress.”
So, what’s the deal with the 3-5 year gap in your resume?
>>If the SHTF, and its 0bamas govt holding on against a country in rebellion,

Relax, Zero could only clear the federal prisons (~ 176,000 prisoners) by E.O. The state prisons would still be full.

That is a swell idea!!! Crime Quotas!!!
You sign up for the government program, commit a crime and get off scott free as long as it is a white on non-minority crime......
In the long run we might be better off, though. If enough people stopped working and thus quit paying income tax, the government could not keep the lights on in Washington. Never mind foreign aid and welfare benefits to almost half the US population.
Unfortunately there are not enough people prepared to make such sacrifice for the good of the nation.
Jeez, does that mean I got to hire for a limo company to hire a person who was arrested for DUI and grand theft auto???
I’m going out a hire a CPA who went to prison for TAX FRAUD!!
Yup! Day care centers will be forced to hire ex-cons with convictions for child sex abuse.
The EEOC lives in an alternate universe just like most bureaucrats.
Does this include the military, security clearances, Whitehut staff, etc?
Well its not disportionate. Its exactly in proportion to the number of black criminals. Disportionate would mean if blacks were seven time more likely to serve time and fourteen times,say, more likely not to be hired.
There is nothing disportionate if the ratio remains the same. It is what it is.
Where blacks can help themselves is to not be criminals in the first place.
I said it a few years ago...in his final hours in office, he will enact a final "F**K YOU AMERICA!" with the act of a Presidental Pardon (with voting and firearm rights restored) to EVERY incarcerated black in America.
the may have some trouble in TX. Try putting “prison or conviction” on your job application...ha.
Wrong. Presidental Pardon for any citizen (or non-citizen) for any crime. Absolutely cannot be contested or countered unless you can impeach him and remove before his pen can sign the sheet of paper.
Maybe he'll offer them a deal: serve one year in his Homie Defense Corpse to get a pardon.
Got a Felony Conviction? No CDL, No Tending Bar, NO WORKING AT CITY HALL!
Holder (or ValJar, or Bill Ayers) probably already has the plan on file.
Theoretically, are not ex-convicts, having served their allotted time,paid fines or other restitutions, et cetera, presumed to have paid their debt to society?
In this matter, a couple of generations' history shows they just can't help themselves.
Redistribution is a modern mode of helping those who have the moral inclination, but are just too lazy to steal. /S
You know, until recently I’d sit back at something like this, chuckle and wait for the inevitable a$$kicking to be administered by the Supreme Court.
But now they’ll just fine ... er ... tax business that fail to comply and it’ll pass the Court in a 5/4 decision with Roberts writing for the majority.
This really isn’t any different than his government and party enacting severely draconian laws that infringe on the rights of abortion clinic protesters. They also protect and avenge any harm that comes to their prolific butchers (aka Abortionists).
Here’s a clue for employers. ALWAYS review resumes and applications in private without having the prospective candidate present. DO NOT CALL anyone in without having had this review. If you are ever caught in a situation where you interview someone who mentions their incarceration, immediately check to see if that was entered on the application. Your applications should REQUIRE that ALL periods of unemployment be accounted for and LISTED as a separate entry....if their incarceration isn’t listed, end the interview for lying on the application.
“Translation: Politicians need jobs after they retire....”
LOL! No truer words were ever spoken.
You want qualifications? Disparate impact.
You want dependability? Disparate impact.
You want references? Disparate impact.
I OWE YOU AN APOLOGY. YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY CORRECT, and I AM WRONG in Post 34..
Presidential pardons are only for federal offenses (not impeachment).
Glad my lawyer walked by my desk ;)
Yes. Certain jobs however require, or at least suggest a strong need for, a clean record.
As for myself, about 3 years ago I interviewed a guy who owned up a conviction for drug possession in his past. He was regretful, paid his penalty, and had put that foolish mistake behind him. Today... he’s my best employee.
and jobs that require a bond or key man insurance make convicted felons uninsurable. (also those with misdemenors involving fraud)
It’s going to be funny when some liberal walks into a small business and the thug clerk cheats him. He’ll complain and the clerk will scream “You just accusin’ me ‘cause I’m a convict.”
Or some liberal business owner in San Francisco hires a thug and the cash register comes up short every day. He’ll say “I’m going to have the raise the prices and probably have to pay more taxes.”
Again, I can’t for the life me understand how anyone could still vote for obama
