LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 1298, as amended, Skinner. The Increasing Access to Employment Act.

(1)Existing

Existing law requires the Department of Justice to maintain state summary criminal history information, as defined, and requires the Attorney General to furnish state summary criminal history information to specified entities and individuals if needed in the course of their duties. individuals, including an authorized entity for employment, licensing, or certification relative to community care facilities, residential care facilities, and other specified health facilities. Existing law requires the department to provide the requester with every conviction of an offense rendered against the applicant, except for a conviction for which relief was granted to a victim of human trafficking, as specified.
This bill would limit the information the department provides to specified requesters to more recent misdemeanors and felonies, generally within 5 years, and other information, as specified, including offenses for which registration as a sex offender is required. The bill would, for specified requesters, prohibit the disclosure of a conviction that has been dismissed, an arrest that was subsequently deemed a detention, or an arrest that resulted in the successful completion of a diversion program, exoneration, or an arrest that has been sealed. The bill would specify what information is to be provided to a consumer reporting agency, as defined. prohibit the department from releasing, for these purposes, the record of convictions that were dismissed pursuant to specified provisions.
Existing law requires the department to provide an agency, organization, or individual, including, but not limited to, a cable corporation, in-home supportive services recipient, or property security organization, requesting the information for specified employment purposes with every conviction for which registration as a sex offender is required and, except as specified, every conviction that occurred within 10 years of the date of the request or for which the person was incarcerated within 10 years of the request for information.
This bill would require that only convictions from the prior 7 years or for which the person was incarcerated or on probation or parole within 7 years of the request be provided.
Existing law requires, when state summary criminal history information is furnished as a result of specified requests, and the information is to be used for employment, licensing, or certification purposes, that the requester furnish the information to the person to whom the information relates if the information is a basis for an adverse employment, licensing, or certification decision.
This bill would instead require the department to furnish a copy of the Criminal Offender Record Information (CORI) to the subject when a state or federal summary criminal history information is requested and the information is to be used for employment, licensing, or certification purposes of the request and would require the department to allow the subject a reasonable opportunity of not less than five days to challenge the accuracy or completeness of any matter contained in the CORI prior to furnishing a report to a third party. The bill would require the department to make specified corrections prior to furnishing the information to the requester.

Existing law requires a person who wants a copy of the his or her state summary criminal history information to obtain an application form furnished by the department and provide his or her fingerprints, in addition to other information specified by the department.

This bill would remove the requirement that a person submit fingerprints to obtain his or her state summary criminal history information and would require only that information the department deems necessary.

(2)Existing law authorizes a person who desires to question the accuracy or completeness of any material matter contained in the record to submit a written request to the department and, if the accuracy of the source document is questioned, requires the department to forward it to the person or agency that furnished the questioned information. Existing law gives person or agency 30 days from the receipt of the written request for clarification, to review its information and forward to the department the results of the review. Under existing law, if the person or agency that created the source document concurs in the allegations of inaccuracy or incompleteness in the record, and finds that the error is material, it is required to correct its record and inform the department. Existing law provides the department 30 within which to inform the applicant of its correction of the record.

This bill would authorize an applicant to question the accuracy or completeness of any matter and, if the source document is questioned, would require the department, within 5 days, to verify the accuracy of the source document with the person or agency that furnished the questioned information. The bill would require the department to correct its record, destroy and purge the incorrect information if the department is unable to verify the accuracy or completeness of the source document and would require to destroy and purge the incorrect information. The bill would require the department to inform the applicant of the correction and destruction of the record within 10 days. The bill would also require a person or agency to which the incorrect record has been disseminated to, upon notification, correct the record accordingly and destroy and purge the incorrect information within 30 days. By increasing the requirements on local agencies that supply the source documents, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program.

(3)This bill would establish the Increasing Access to Employment Fund and would make funds available, upon appropriation, to the California Workforce Investment Board to administer a grant program aimed at improving rehabilitation, reentry, and employment and licensing outcomes for people with criminal convictions, as specified.

(4)Existing law requires the disclosure of local summary criminal history information by a local criminal justice agency to certain authorized entities and authorizes the disclosure of that information to other entities in specified circumstances.

The bill would require a local agency to disclose local summary criminal history information to the subject of the request or to an individual who is the subject of the record requested when needed in conjunction with an application to enter the United States or any foreign nation. By increasing the duties of local criminal justice agencies, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program. The bill would also reduce the entities to which local summary criminal history is required to be disclosed and to which that information is authorized to be disclosed, as specified.

Existing law prohibits a local criminal justice agency from releasing information under specified circumstances, including information concerning an arrest or detention followed by a dismissal or release without attempting to determine whether the individual was exonerated.

This bill would prohibit a local criminal justice agency from releasing information relating to convictions that were dismissed, arrests subsequently deemed a detention, arrests that resulted in the successful completion of a diversion program, exoneration, or arrests that were sealed. The bill would also limit the information that a local criminal justice agency can disclose to convictions for which registration as a sex offender is required, information concerning misdemeanor convictions that occurred before 2 years of the date of the request for information, and felony convictions that occurred before 5 years of the date of the request for information.

The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.

This bill would provide that, if the Commission on State Mandates determines that the bill contains costs mandated by the state, reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to the statutory provisions noted above.

Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: YESNO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 (a) This act shall be known, and may be cited, as the Increasing Access to Employment Act.
(b) It is the intent of the Legislature that criminal conviction records not operate as an automatic bar to employment, licensure, and certification. It is the intent of the Legislature not to change or impact in any way the role or authority of a licensing board or state agency to assess the fitness of applicants seeking licensure, certification, and employment pursuant to provisions of the Business and Professions Code, Health and Safety Code, Insurance Code, and Welfare and Institutions Code, as applicable. This act supercedes any statute, regulation, rule, or decision directing a licensing board, state agency, employer, or any other applicable person or entity, to obtain criminal history records in a manner that conflicts with the intent of this act.
(c) It is the intent of the Legislature to create the Increasing Access to Employment Fund for rehabilitation and reentry services to improve prospects for licensing, certification, and professional employment for people with criminal conviction records. Recidivism is reduced when people with criminal convictions are given the opportunity to secure employment and engage in a trade, occupation, or profession. It is in the interest of public safety to assist in the rehabilitation of criminal offenders by removing impediments and restrictions on an offenders’ ability to obtain employment or engage in a trade, occupation, or profession when those impediments and restrictions are based solely upon the existence of a criminal record. Increasing opportunities for people with criminal records improves the economic well-being of families and communities and is a path to full employment in California.
