HB 380 Died in the House - Would have Limited Employer Access to Conviction Information of Future Employees

Author: Miranda Bond Date: June 17, 2014

House Bill 380 died in the House yesterday, the last day of the Delaware legislative session. This bill was stopped due to the outcry from the business community. Thank you to all who urged their legislators to oppose this bill.

This bill would have limited employer access to conviction data from criminal acts classified as “unclassified misdemeanors.” Per page 88 of SENTAC, unclassified misdemeanors include, but are not limited to:

  • Unlawful use of consumer identification information
  • Unlawful use of credit card information
  • Unlawful printing credit card receipt
  • Endangering children
  • Sexual harassment
  • Criminal Trespass 2nd Degree
Unfortunately, it is a serious reality that there are daily stories in the news about employees stealing or abusing business records and customer identification data.

If Delaware employers no longer had access to valuable public records of criminal history information for prospective employees, their business, employees and customers may be in jeopardy, opening the door for potential liability claims.

Thank you to everyone who took action on this important issue
