Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Current law, subject to certain exceptions, prohibits discrimination in
employment based on conviction record. Current law specifies, however, that it is not
employment discrimination because of conviction record to refuse to employ or to
terminate from employment any individual who has been convicted of any felony,
misdemeanor or other offense, the circumstances of which substantially relate to the
circumstances of the particular job. This bill expands that exception to the
prohibition against employment discrimination based on conviction record by
specifying that it is not employment discrimination because of conviction record to
refuse to employ or to terminate from employment any individual who has been
convicted of a felony and who has not been pardoned, whether or not the
circumstances of the felony substantially relate to the circumstances of the
particular job.

For further information see the state and local fiscal estimate, which will be
printed as an appendix to this bill.
