Strike from the Record? Administrative Burdens in Take-up of Criminal Record Clearance – Oct 21

Posted by Temple University Public Policy Lab on October 5, 2021

Too few people eligible for clearing their criminal record take-up the program, creating a “second chance gap.” While the policy was designed to help mitigate the collateral consequences of an arrest or criminal conviction – such as boosting employment rates, wages, and reducing re-offending – only a small share of justice-involved individuals proceeds through the administrative process, leaving many disqualified from public benefits.

Why do so few people with a criminal record petition for relief? This project explores different administrative burdens and how they affect record-bearers and record-clearance.
