I have been working with a staffing company since November/December of 2012 (7 months). I had to fill out an application for the staffing agency, and do a face to face interview. I have a 3rd Degree Assault on my record (DV) that I disclosed this information both on my application and in my interview. Recently I was offered a position by the staffing agency and screen, tested to make sure I qualified for the position. I passed all assessments, etc. Was set to start tomorrow, but based solely on my background check was denied the position and told they have a flat ban on certain offenses, which means they should have never worked with me to begin with according to them. Based on info EEOC I am looking at complaints or a law suit for discrimination but want to check the validity of this.From everything that I have read employers cannot base termination or employment solely on the results of a criminal background check, cannot have a "flat ban" policy automatically denying applicants employment, as well as rules they have to follow such as sending a copy of the background report to the applicant along with information regarding certain policies prior to any adverse actions, and so on. Most of this information is talking about people with felonies and not misdemeanors. I have not been able to get a job in 4 years due to the misdemeanor on my record and this feels like my right to work is being infringed upon.
