The Employer Guide to Hiring a Formerly Incarcerated Person

Businesses, communities, families and society as a whole benefit when the nearly 30% of Americans with criminal records are employed.                                                                                                             Ex-offenders who are employed are less likely to commit crimes.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Instead of society paying on average nearly $25,000 per year to house an inmate, an employed ex-offender will be contributing to the tax base.

There is a Strong Correlation Between Employment and Success of Ex-Offenders in the Community

95% of individuals who are incarcerated will be released back into our communities.
An unemployed ex-offender is four times more likely to return to prison than an ex-offender who is employed.
