Illinois Requires Casinos To Individually Consider Job Applicants With Criminal Records

For more than two years, employers in many industries in Illinois have been required by law to give consideration to the full context of qualifications for some job applicants with criminal records instead of immediately disqualifying them based on that. That requirement now applies to the gambling industry in Illinois, too.

Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker just finalized the new law that extends existing protections for applicants for certain jobs in the gaming industry. The law specifies exactly what type of positions the protections apply to and how regulators can use their discretion in these circumstances.
