Texas Challenges the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) on Limiting the Use of Criminal History in Employment Decisions!
The state of Texas feels the EEOC is overreaching with their guidelines that restrict the use of criminal history in hiring decisions. Texas feels so strongly about it, that they have sued the federal government. The case is currently on appeal at the Federal 5th Circuit Court of Appeal where oral arguments are being heard.
The Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM) recapped the case here. The article also included additional information, news, and resources on the topic.
