"yesterday was the fourth (!) the investigation on an employer's abuse of the records check to the government."
"Hopefully it will be easier for people who have at some time made a stupidity to make a comeback in the professional world."
"I read a letter a young woman sent to the Ministry of labour. When she was 19 shoplifted a pair of headphones. Fines and five years in the judicial record."
"She was offered the job in the clothes shop. Was overjoyed. But it required the prospective employer extracts from the register. She gave up."
"In the letter writes the woman that she did not understand how she should get a job during the five years, the dot is still there: ”This has really got me to lose the lust for life”."
"hands up, whoever thinks that these consequences of a couple of twisted headphones is reasonable."
"How could it be this miserable?"
"in Order to explain it we must go back to 1989, when the people had the right to transparency about what is in the police records about themselves."
"But the politicians did a mediocre job. They ignored warnings that the insynsrätten could be abused by employers who would begin to demand strafflöshetsintyg. Anything that went contrary to the parliamentary intention that the one who served their sentence to facilitate their reintegration in society."
"So it went as it went. The year 2003 was 40 000 extract. In 2012 it was 199 000. Another five years later, it was over 300 000. Hamburgerkedjor, plumber, tabloids, each and every employer is exploiting the system."
"It just gets harder and harder to establish themselves in the community for the crap in the luggage. This applies not only to serious repeat offenders. It also applies to all those who received fines for speeding and all that at some time in his youth done something stupid, and then sharpened."
"Why to hire a girl who torskat for shoplifting when there are nine other young people who want the job and that is clean?"
"the Government has long been aware of the situation, and appointed last year a committee of investigation. Yesterday submitted its proposal to the minister for employment Ylva Johansson."
"It contains an extended författningsstöd of the records check in the world of work for the prison service, the Prosecution service, serious fraud office and some financial companies. "
"in Addition, it proposes a new law for people who work with care of the elderly or persons with disabilities."
"the Proposals are sensible. Members of the Hells Angels convicted of a crime shall not work as an plitar at the prison. People with a background that fraudsters should not be released into virriga 90-year-old Agda."
"In general, it shall be prohibited for employers to request an extract from the register, except for those who already has support in the law to do it. Schools and sports clubs will also in the future be able to check that the one they want to hire is not convicted of sex or violent crimes."
"But will a ban on the register really be introduced? It is not a political location for the reforms that may be perceived as coddling criminals.nEn source within the Conservatives, who have long fought for a change, saying that the party falters."
"It is moral to hell making it more difficult for people who have taken their punishment to make a comeback in the professional world. In addition, it is economics-debilt people to live on benefits instead of working and paying taxes."
"Tragikomiskt in this context is that this has been investigated three times before, in 2002, 2009 and 2014. The investigations of the appointees of both the S-governments of the Alliance."
"All the investigations have wanted to put an end to employers' abuse. But they have all been killed. It has not been intrigue between the various departments so has employers ' organisations succeeded with their lobbying."
"Throughout the 2000s has been spent on investigations which did not lead to anything. A less flattering record that would qualify in the Guinness book of records."
"How many utredningsmiljoner lavished, I can't even think of."
"But perhaps happens anything now. A change in the law would not completely solve the problem. Yet there is Lexbase and similar services where judgments can be picked up. But there is no reason not to do something."
"Politicians, take this opportunity to make Sweden to a slightly better country."
