Rethinking Criminal Records Checks
Building on earlier successful work addressing this issue, the Rethinking Criminal Records project will educate employers and job seekers about their rights and obligations in disclosing criminal history.
The Rethinking Criminal Record Checks (RCRC) project is an Aboriginal-led project which aims to address the barriers to employment for Aboriginal Victorians created by criminal record checks. The RCRC project will build knowledge of best practice in relation to the employment of Aboriginal people with a criminal record. It will also develop resources to support Aboriginal job-seekers with a criminal record to present their best case for employment and enable employers to make informed decisions about employing an Aboriginal person with a criminal record.
