Arrest Record Discrimination

Do you believe you were denied employment on the basis of arrests that did not result in a criminal conviction or for criminal history that was later expunged?

Call today for a free consultation -- the Law Office of Jeffrey J. Kmoch may be able to help.


Merely having been arrested should not be a bar to employment opportunities.


Under the Illinois Human Rights Act (IHRA), employers cannot refuse to hire or otherwise discriminate against candidates for employment due to the fact they had been arrested (and not later convicted) or on account of convictions that were later expunged, sealed, or impounded.  The IHRA does, however, permit employers to make employment decisions based on criminal convictions that were not subsequently expunged, sealed, or impounded.


Attorney Jeffrey Kmoch has extensive experience litigating and counseling on matters involving criminal and arrest history discrimination.  If you believe you were denied employment due to arrests for offenses that did not result in a conviction or due to criminal convictions that were later expunged, call today for a free consultation.


Statutes of limitations and deadlines to file administrative agency charges apply to employment discrimination claims, so time may be of the essence.
