Find out how new laws will affect people with criminal records, particularly Aboriginal ex-offenders.
This event is part of the Victorian Law Week.
Criminal record discrimination has disproportionately impacted Aboriginal people in Victoria. The Criminal Record Discrimination Project investigated the damaging effects of criminal record discrimination across Victoria and our new project, Rethinking Criminal Record Checks, will educate employers and job seekers about their rights and obligations in disclosing criminal history.
Please join us for a panel discussion which aims to provide jobseekers, including Aboriginal people who have a criminal record, with information and guidance to present their strongest case for employment to an employer. The discussion will also look at how criminal history is taken into account in employment decisions.
