Job Discrimination against felons

The laws may say that an employer cannot discriminate against a potential employee based on a felony..........The truth of the matter is though, you will be discriminated against. Why would an employer choose a felon when they can hire someone who is not a felon? There are less legal issues if a situation arises and the person involved is not a felon. The person who is not a felon may be in trouble, but the company cannot be held liable for knowingly hiring a felon. There have been managers who have stated quote ' I will hire someone else, anybody else, before I hire a felon! The reason managers may give you for not hiring you may be many. Anything that will allow them to deny you employment legally. The true underlying issue is that you are a felon. We will not take a chance on you. If we don't hire you we don't have to worry about you, or how our customers will react knowing that we hired you. In management we can choose which college students we want. Do we want to hire the one with the 4.0 grade point average or the one with the 3.9 grade point average. Why would management want to hire a felon when they have so many other choices? Which brings us to the end of our interview. Sorry, but we have decided to go with someone else who meets our needs or is more qualified. I didn't even have to say you didn't get the job because you are a felon. "Even if you were the best person for the job and I liked you over the other applicants". Good luck to you and I'm sure you'll find something more in the line of what you're looking for with someone other company. Thanks for coming in anyway.
