The city of Seattle is currently considering a proposed ordinance that would make it illegal for employers to discriminate against potential employees based on their past criminal record.
Isn't that the whole point of a background check?
IMO, I wouldn't want someone with a history of drug abuse working in a pharmacy.
What are your thoughts? Is this fair? Are the criminals being victimized if their past records are being used against them since they have presumably already served their time?
