Employers are prohibited from including questions about criminal records on job applications or asking about criminal history until after a conditional offer has been made to an applicant. When reviewing criminal histories, employers must:

  • Only consider felonies for ten years and misdemeanors for 5 years after the completion of a sentence.
  • Consider various factors, such as whether or not a record is relevant to the position, before revoking a conditional offer.
