FDNY may hire ex-cons

An anti discrimination settlement will force department to consider applicants who racked up good-behavior record in prison


The New York Post

NEW YORK —  The FDNY will consider hiring convicted felons with a "Certificate ofGood Conduct" from the state parole board, the department said in a notice posted last week. Such applicants will get a "special review."

The notice to potential applicants includes the text of a state law aimed at stopping employment discrimination against ex-cons who have done time and stayed clean.
