Wisconsin Conviction Record Bill Does Not Pass 2009 Legislative Session

The bills proposed in both the Senate and the Assembly for the State legislature in Wisconsin to prohibit employers from asking about conviction records before selecting a person for interview did not make it to the floor for vote this 2009 legislative session. The bills failed due mostly to timing. Wisconsin law still prohibits discrimination in employment based on both arrest records and conviction records, but the law does not prohibit an employer from requiring disclosure of conviction records in an employment application.
