Criminal Background

Compliance with SRC’s Criminal Background Policy

SRC reaffirms its commitment to offering employment opportunities on SRC-funded projects to qualified applicants with criminal convictions.
When contractors hire employees to fulfill contractual obligations to SRC and to work at SRC job sites or on SRC premises, they must adhere to SRC’s Criminal Background Policy Statement. In the hiring of those employees, contractors may not apply hiring standards that are more exclusionary than those outlined in the Policy Statement.

No applicant for employment will be automatically barred from employment on a SRC-funded project at a SRC job site or on SRC premises because of his or her criminal background. Instead, any criminal conviction must be evaluated in its full context, including a consideration of the nature and gravity of the conviction, the amount of time that has elapsed since the conviction, and the nature of the job sought, among other factors, unless Connecticut or federal law specifically prohibits hiring a person with that particular conviction for that particular kind of work. Arrests that did not lead to a conviction must not be considered unless the case is still pending.

MBE/WBE/Section 3

Section 281 of the National Affordable Housing Act requires each participating jurisdiction to prescribe procedures acceptable to the Secretary to establish and oversee a minority outreach program. The program shall include minority and woman-owned businesses in all contracting activities entered into by the participating jurisdiction to facilitate the provision of affordable housing authorized under this Act or any other federal housing law applicable to such jurisdiction.
