The Effect of Criminal Records on Access to Employment

Even fairly minor felony records have large negative effects on employer callbacks during the application process. This study offers the largest-to-date field experiment testing the effect of criminal records on employment access using a variety of subsamples defined by applicant and job characteristics. The results confirm those of past field experiments, with a much larger and more recent sample and using online applications.
