Remove Unfair Non-disclosure Agreement clauses from the Police Employment Process
Petition Background (Preamble):
While the state courts have made the claim that disclosure of adverse information regarding an applicant could prevent informants from coming forward with pertinent information regarding the employee, it results in a biased background investigation and a denial of employment wherever the applicant goes based on each background done following the applicant.
These non-disclosure agreements are very harmful to people who are applying for these types of jobs in a very competitive job market and to deny someone the right to know why they are not being selected is just wrong. The federal government doesn't allow this practice in their employment process so neither should the states. It is time for there to be more openness in the hiring of police officer applicants.
It is with this petition that there will be transparency again in the hiring of police officers resulting in more efficient hiring and preventing the common practice of blacklisting a former police officer through the use of Non-disclosure agreements.
