The Employment of Persons with Arrest Records and the Ex-Offender.
Sultan, Paul; Ehmann, Gerhard E.
This document was an attempt to distill in a readable form some of the highlights of seminars and institutes sponsored by the National Conference of Christians and Jews in Los Angeles for the purpose of studying the effect of social labelling of persons with an arrest record on their chances of being employed and earning an honest living. Some of the issues discussed are: society's trampling of the offender; Americans' fear of crime; what the prison does to and for the offender; the possibilities for training and job orientation programs; psychological behavior in the adjustment process; innovative institutional programs; irrelevance of personnel tests and entry level requirements; orientation guidelines for the evaluation of police records; and inservice training in job survival.
