2005 Connecticut Code - Sec. 46a-79. (Formerly Sec. 4-61n). State policy re employment of criminal offenders.

      Sec. 46a-79. (Formerly Sec. 4-61n). State policy re employment of criminal offenders. The General Assembly finds that the public is best protected when criminal offenders are rehabilitated and returned to society prepared to take their places as productive citizens and that the ability of returned offenders to find meaningful employment is directly related to their normal functioning in the community. It is therefore the policy of this state to encourage all employers to give favorable consideration to providing jobs to qualified individuals, including those who may have criminal conviction records.

      (P.A. 73-347, S. 1, 7; P.A. 80-422, S. 27.)

      History: P.A. 80-422 substituted "therefore" for "therefor"; Sec. 4-61n transferred to Sec. 46a-79 in 1981.
