Oregon Employer Criminal History Questions Ban?


Oregonians clearly oppose banning criminal background questions. Clearly, any way to make this work is to emphasize the exceptions. In principle, however, this has problems.

QUESTION: A number of laws were passed by the legislature and signed by the Governor. Do you approve or disapprove of banning employers from asking about criminal history in job applications.
IF APPROVE/DISAPPROVE: Is that strongly or somewhat?
IF DON’T KNOW: Which way do you lean?

METHODOLOGY: Live telephone interviews of 400 likely Oregon gubernatorial general election voters were conducted July 13-15, 2015. The margin of error at the sample median is 5%. Quotas were established based on gender, age, party, and region. Totals may not equal 100% due to rounding.
