I guess it might be the exception that proves the rule, but legislators in the Hoosier State gave Indiana employers a lot more leeway in their job interview techniques with a new law that took effect July 1. Not only can Indiana employers inquire into any criminal history that a job applicant may have, the law further provides that local communities are prohibited from imposing any particular restrictions on employment questions beyond those provided by federal or state law. S312, signed into law by Governor Eric Holcomb back in April, places restrictions on when criminal history may be used against an employee and incorporates new business liability reforms to protect employers from negligent hiring liability.
