Abstract

In the U.S., conviction-based-employment discrimination (CBED) is attracting a great deal of attention on account of intense concern about enhancing ex-offender chances for post conviction, especially post-imprisonment, successful “reentry.” Europe seems unconcerned about CBED. It is not a hot policy issue in Europe and attracts very little research or commentary. Why? Is it because European employers do not discriminate against job applicants or employees with criminal convictions? This Article seeks to address the relevance of a criminal record to employment opportunity in Europe.
