  • Caution Essential When Hiring Someone With An Arrest Recordwww.lawtoncates.com/media-library/in-the-press/caution-essential-when-hiring-someone-with-an-arrest-record Employees and applicants with arrest and conviction records pose unique concerns for Wisconsin employers. Seemingly conflicting legal obligations flank the employer's pathway for hiring and firing individuals with criminal records. To walk that path with a sure foot, employers must be familiar with Wisconsin law and implement strategies for compliance. On the one hand, employers must avoid employing persons whose backgrounds pose an unreasonable risk of harm to others or their property. Neglecting this duty may expose employers to negligent hiring, training and supervision claims. On the other hand, employers must avoid unlawfully discriminating against employees and applicants based on their arrest or conviction records for felonies, misdemeanors, or other offenses. Failing to do so may expose employers to discrimination claims under the Wisconsin Fair Employment Act (WFEA).
