TRENTONAssembly Republican Leader Jon Bramnick is trying to stop the posting of a bill allowing criminals to hide their background of criminal convictions on an employment application. 

The bill, A-3837, prohibits an employer from asking about an applicant's criminal history.

 "This legislation should not be posted and we cannot allow it to be fast-tracked during the next month," said Bramnick (R-Union, Morris and Somerset). "Employers should be told about the criminal history when the applicant is asked the question. This type of bill makes it more difficult to evaluate prospective employees. It is absurd that an employer should not be given all relevant information up front. Withholding this information is bad public policy."
