    I wish someone would explain to me the purpose of doing a background check on work at home employees. There’s no workplace safety component and there is no research that says people who steal from companies are already felons. It’s makes NO sense and should be deemed unlawful. There are millions of people who WANT to work, but who can’t pass the background check or the CREDIT check? Credit check, really? If i had a job, i’d have better credit. I have bad credit, a MASTERS degree and a non-violent felony from 20 years ago and NO COMPANY will hire me??!! Even the companies that make you be an ind. contractor?! This makes no sense. They are using a set formula and not taking anything else into consideration, meanwhile i have experience and am the PeRFECT person for this job. A change needs to happen.

      I will start out saying I completely agree with you that it’s ridiculous! I agree with you that on background checks they should take other things into consideration & a person’s personal credit being looked at is RIDICULOUS!
      However, I’m just going to share this to put the info out, even though I don’t like it!
      I know the “why” of them usually doing it-INSURANCE! That’s right crooked insurance companies (who IMO, more than half of what they do should be illegal). Most the places who insure a lot of these companies that won’t hire felons, basically make it so they can’t. Say there is a felon working somewhere and the company ok’s it or doesn’t run a BG-check and something happens, say a serious amount of damage is done to their property or a lot of money gets stolen, well the insurance companies being the POS’s that they are, don’t want to pay the company what they’re owed when they claim it so the first thing they do is start to look for “violations of their policy”. Hiring felons is one of the reasons-they consider it a violation. I had a woman from a Company where I’d applied for a virtual assistant position, tell me this. I’d passed the tests, and had the job, all we had left to do was go over my schedule, but when they ran a background check, even though it had been over 10 years and it wasn’t anything violent or I didn’t do anything that was considered that bad, she couldn’t hire me. The woman told me how if it where up to her she would, but she couldn’t or she could get fired herself.
      There are companies that the government even gives a tax break to, so they will hire felons. I know at&t is one of them. I think there’s a list somewhere online.
      I’m a mom of 3 which I am now a stay at home mom because of my youngest child who’s disabled. I too went to college and have a degree, I too made a mistake in my past which I even completed the period of being “good” and not getting into anymore trouble (which I have the opportunity to have my record sealed because of my completion of their probationary period, but that costs over $500 so I haven’t been able to go take care of it yet) and even though I’m more than qualified, I can’t get a lot of jobs.
      My credit is screwed from student loans and when everything started happening with my child, I had to stop working & I couldn’t make any of my credit card payments.
      At least we know we’re not alone, and it’s sad and it does need to change!
      To the woman who wrote this, thank you for making this list! I’m looking forward to applying at some of the places. 😊Kim
