Employment Reentry Tools

Webinar:

Facts and Myths: Health Care Employment Opportunities for People with Criminal Records

Hosted by the National Reentry Resource Center
Health care is one of the fastest-growing employment sectors in the country, with the demand for qualified workers greatly exceeding supply in many areas. But people who have criminal records are often unable to enter or advance within this relatively high-paying sector due to a complex web of legal barriers that make jobs and licenses difficult or impossible to obtain.

This webinar separates the myths from the facts about these barriers in order to develop a better understanding of the true scope and impact of employment-related collateral consequences in the health care sector.

Brookings has come out with a new report on occupational licensing.

Here’s a summary:
Occupational licensing - the legal requirement that a credential is obtained in order to practice a profession—is a common labor market regulation that ostensibly exists to protect public health and safety. However, by limiting access to many occupations, licensing imposes substantial costs: consumers pay higher prices, economic opportunity is reduced for unlicensed workers, and even those who successfully obtain licenses must pay upfront costs and face limited geographic mobility. In addition, licensing often prescribes and constrains the ways in which work is structured, limiting innovation and economic growth.

Researchers have studied these licensing impacts, and much of their analysis is well-summarized in a 2015 report released by the Obama administration. One important finding is that licensed workers tend to earn more than similar workers who are not required to obtain licenses: they receive a wage premium relative to unlicensed workers.

Ron’s Story

I left home when I was 17; I had been abused by my stepfather and had been using drugs for about 4 years. I ended up in Hollywood about a year later with no money and no place to live in 1977. I met many people involved with drugs and began using them myself. I spent the years between 1985 and 1999 going in and out of prison, being homeless and addicted to drugs.
