    Employing Our Returning Citizens (now available online)

    Young, N.C.J. & Griffith, J.N. (2024). Employing Our Returning Citizens: An employer-centric view. Palgrave MacMillan.

    A criminal record can be a formidable employment barrier and is thus a major contributor to employment inequality, as most employers would rather avoid hiring an individual who has committed a crime. This book, offering an employer-centric view of the latest research findings, blends interdisciplinary theoretical perspectives and empirical findings to provide an overview and areas for future management research.
