On April 25, 2012, under the auspices of The Office of Civil Rights and The Department of Justice, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) issued an updated enforcement guidance, cautioning employers that the use of arrest or conviction information in making employment decisions may, in certain circumstances, violate Title VII of the Civil Rights Act (Title VII) of 1964, as amended, which prohibits discrimination in employment based on race, national origin, and other protected classes. In light of the disproportionately high national rates of arrest and imprisonment of African Americans and Hispanics, especially African American and Hispanic men in comparison to their representation in the general population, the EEOC Enforcement Guidance advises employers that if they misuse arrest and conviction records in making employment decisions, they may be engaging in unlawful discrimination.
