Clean Slate legislation
PA is leading the way on bi-partisan legislation for “Clean Slate” that will seal arrests and minor convictions if the person has met criteria including no repeat offenses over 10 years. This will give people a “second chance” at employment that traditionally may have denied them based on a single conviction. This will open up a pool of candidates during this low level of unemployment. So the legislation has been met optimistically by politician, corporations and HR with little concern.
