Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Several criminal justice and policy researchers have questioned the benefit of conducting pre- employment background checks. Our review of the background check literature suggests that persons with physical and cognitive disabilities have a much higher probability of being financially exploited, neglected, or abused. We recommend a balance of employment for incarcerated persons for re- entry into society, however, caution putting violent felons into employment providing long- term care services.
