Local Jobs, Updates, and Other Information

Local jobs for ex-offenders is something that we’ve been trying to work on for a while here. It’s actually something we’ve been trying to add since the site was started back up last year. The problem with having a local jobs section on ex-offenders is the massive amount of manpower it would have required. At least, that’s what we thought. This no longer seems to be the case, and a local jobs section will be launching within the next day or so. The local jobs section is part of Exoffenders 2.0 and is the main reason that hasn’t launched yet. … Continue reading

Our National Project for Change

There’s some pretty big things going on at Exoffenders, and I’d like to share some of it with you. To start off, in the little free time I have had, I’ve been working on upgrading the site. The idea was to make it a lot more usable, streamlined, and helpful. Some things in it’s current form are not as accessible as I would like them to be. Most of the changes I’ve been working on are now finished, and it’s almost ready to launch. Exoffenders 2.0, which is what Kay calls it, will launch over the weekend. In this time the site … Continue reading

Background Reports and the FCRA – The Weiner Law Firm

It is no surprise that it can be difficult for ex-offenders to obtain and maintain employment because of potential employers’ misconceptions and assumptions.  To combat these issues, one tool in the ex-offenders’ toolbox to ensure that they receive due process in the employment arena is the Fair Credit Reporting Act (the FCRA).  The FCRA is a broad federal law that requires that employers and background report companies give employees and applicants a fair shake with respect to background reports that they run on those individuals.  Every employer in the United States is subject to the FCRA, regardless of size, and … Continue reading

Resources, Training, and a New Team Member

Progress on the resources portion of the site is starting to move forward a little quicker. Georgia and New Hampshire are up and California’s resources page should be done pretty soon. Hopefully our visitors from those states can find assistance from one of the resources. There is also a new addition, possibly two, to the Exoffenders.net team! They will be helping me work on the reentry & assistance resources pages. I’m pretty excited about this, and it should be a huge help with working on the site. Aside from that, Erik created lesson 3 for his job skill training classes. He’s … Continue reading

The April 2014 Update – Jobs, Voting, and Expungement

april 2014 update

It’s been a little bit since there has been any update here on Exoffenders. I’ve added about 15 new companies to the jobs list, as well as removed a few. There’s also a few minor changes here and there to other sections. Hopefully the additions and changes will be helpful to ex-offenders. I’ve received a lot of emails over the past month regarding information on expungement. Sadly, I don’t know the laws for each state so I haven’t been able to answer these questions for the most part. Since it is becoming a frequently asked topic, I’m going to start … Continue reading
