After the Sentence, More Consequences: A National Report of Barriers to Work
Hosted by The Council of State Governments (CSG) Justice Center and Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA)
The collateral consequences of conviction—statutory and regulatory restrictions that limit or prohibit people convicted of crimes from accessing employment, housing, and other rights, benefits, and opportunities—can have debilitating effects on the livelihood and social integration of people with criminal histories, increasing the likelihood of recidivism and contributing to family and community instability. This webinar provides a national overview of the scope, features, and operation of employment-related collateral consequences and provide considerations for policymakers in reducing these barriers to work.
