Credit Checks: An Illegitimate Barrier to Employment for Survivors

General Material
Published Date
October, 2015

This webinar presented by the Center for Survivor Agency and Justice and Amy Traub of the policy organization Demos discusses how credit checks can prevent domestic violence survivors from accessing employment. Victims of domestic violence are discussed as being in a “Catch 22” situation because abuse can be a cause of bad credit, but bad credit can also prevent victims from getting jobs that would help them get away from the violence. The webinar runs 1 hour and 29 minutes. Users may need to install WebEx in order to view the webinar.
