Many survivors of domestic violence find themselves with criminal records. Often, this is due to coerced criminal acts experienced at the hands of their partner. Sometimes, it’s the result of a misguided criminal justice system response to their partner’s abuse (for example, a dual arrest). Regardless of the reason, survivors with criminal records face enormous challenges in accessing employment and economic security.

The Center for Survivor Agency & Justice has developed a reference tool for survivors with criminal records seeking employment. This guide gives survivors and advocates a better understanding of employment rights. It offers tips and resources available to survivors when they are seeking employment.
