Opinion: City of Little Rock can refuse employment of sex offenders

Posted By on Fri, Jun 6, 2014 at 3:14 PM

Little Rock City Attorney Tom Carpenter issued a legal opinion today responding to questions about whether the city can have a policy against hiring  Level 3 and 4 sex offenders (the highest category) and prohibit hiring lower level offenders at the Zoo and Parks and Recreation Department, where work with children might be involved. The answer to both questions was yes.
