This webinar is for attorneys who are working with people who have pending criminal charges who are prospectively seeking occupational licenses and/or are criminal system impacted who are applying for occupational licenses. In CA, an estimated 7,955,500 people, or approximately 1 in 3 adults have arrest or convictions records. Access to stable employment is a significant factor to reducing recidivism. However, nearly 30 percent of CA jobs require licensure, certification, or clearance by an oversight board or agency for approximately 1,773 different occupations. People with criminal records face barriers to licensure, certification, or clearance. This webinar aims to address concerns around occupational licensing from representing people in criminal court pre-plea, using criminal record remedies, to representation at the hearing for an occupational license.
