 Policy For Hiring Those With Felony Convictions

We received the following response after contacting them regarding their hiring policies for those with felony convictions:

State Lottery laws do not permit us to employ any person who will participate in the management or sales of lottery tickets who has been convicted of a felony.Our employees are crossed trained in all areas of our stores and the necessity of them possibly needing to cover the cashier position, therefore we are unable to hire individuals with these types of convictions.

    I just looked up Arkansas and the Lottery Commission does do a background check on the RETAILER APPLYING FOR THE LICENSE and NOT his or her employees. There are no such restrictions in the state of Arkansas.

    My wife was hired at cases in August of 2016 and today she was fired after many raises and even put onfull time by area manager and was looking at kitchen manager well here it is march 22nd 2017 and she was fired today for having a felon on her record n told it was due to Missouri state law that she coyldnt sell lotto tickets . Well there is no Missouri state law prohibiting an employee of cases general store from selling lottery tickets just as a management person purchasing for store not a cashier so I guess we will let the lawyers hash it out

    I was told on May 4th 2017 after being offered a job they can’t hire me. The reason given is a Felony DUI from 2008. I was told by an area supervisor that it’s a Missouri law. Is this true or not. I do know that Missouri is a right to work state, which is a joke.

    I had applied for a job at caseys earlier this year and got the job.i never lied on my application.i stated that i was an ex convict.i had spent several years in prison for assault…ive never been in trouble for anything related to alchhol nor drugs nor firearms..it was a bad choice at a young time in my life and that was almost 20 years ago.as i said …i got the job…i went in to finnish paperwork and go through orientation…durring the paperwork they ask basic questions and one was have i ever been convicted of a felony…wich i said yes and explained…the interveiwer was shocked and after calling her supervisor told me she was sorry but they couldnt hire me…i asked why not since id been through all the interveiws and we were almost through with my paperwork…she said that because of atf laws they werent allowed to hire felons…she said my background check came back clean but since i had admitted to being incarcerated she could not therefore hire me….a lot of people think that the idea of an ex con not being able to find work because of their past is bullshit…wich is not true….im 45 years old and have done mostly manual labor in my past…but because of health reasons…thats no longer an option….its already hard enough when you cant work at anything manual…heavy lifting or strenuous….couple that with not being able to work in any nursing homes or people oriented jobs and now any convienance store that sells alchohol or lotterry tickets and the general assumption that your past will be your future and any health restrictions….its no wonder recidivism is so high….because of my not being able to do what i need…not just because of caseys but hireing at different places in general…..i have lost my wife…my home and most of my dignity….i am now trying to get disability based on my medical problems….but that small amout wont pay all the bills…im haveing to live with friends that understand…and that far and few inbetween…..but being 45 and having nothing because of a mistake wich ive paid for over 20 years is hell….and im one of the lucky ones…theres so many that dont have a roof over their heads…or food to eat…one mistake doesnt make a person….and its bullshit that rules like these are in place for everyone reguardless of offense or time.in 20 years the worst thing ive done is go over the speed limit….now i dont even have a vehichle….this is not how life is supposed to be for anyone…..

    Yes Il30 ILCS 500/50-10 (Felons)
    Unless otherwise provided, no person or business convicted of a felony shall do business with
    the State of Illinois or any State agency, or enter into a subcontract, from the date of conviction
    until 5 years after the date of completion of the sentence for that felony, unless no person held
    responsible by a prosecutorial office for the facts upon which the conviction was based continues
    to have any involvement with the business.
    Restriction Type: Mandatory
    Restriction Duration: From the date of conviction until 5 years after the date of completion of
    the sentence for that felony, unless no person held responsible by a prosecutorial office for the
    facts upon which the conviction was based continues to have any involvement with the business.

    linois says that if you are a felon you cannot work around Lottery, alcohol for a mandated period of 5
    years after the conviction and completion of court order unless any person involved with that charge is still employed….SO YES CASEYS YOU CAN !!!!!! just say Caseys wont hire felons and stop blaming the state of
    Illinois…..
