Certificate of Employability Unlinking

Problem

Previously, the law stated that an ex-offender could petition for their certificate of employability, which is available to ex-offenders who committed non-violent crimes and can help them land a job, only if they were in the process of restoring their rights of citizenship, which is a lengthy process in its own right. This made it difficult for ex-offenders to get a job and reenter the workforce.

Solution

My bill unlinks the certificate of employability process from the restoration of citizenship to make it easier for ex-offenders to apply for the certificate and reentering the workforce.
