LEXINGTON, Ky., Feb. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Today's economy has made all but certain that there are hundreds of job seekers for virtually every open position. Employers are notoriously selective with their hires, and typically the first applicants to be eliminated from consideration are those millions of Americans whose background checks reveal a past criminal record…of any sort. And while an improving economy may provide an increased number of employment opportunities, it won't minimize the effect that a criminal record has on the screening process.
"Most individuals who have been convicted of a criminal offense think that once they've paid the fine, or served the time, their record is automatically removed from the courts' databases, and the public's eye-which couldn't be farther from reality," asserts Brian Poe, founder and CEO of EAS Technologies, the parent company for Shred My Record®. "Hundreds of Consumer Reporting Agencies (CRAs) regularly access the court system data and sell it over and over again- almost assuring that any past infraction will be easily found and used to reject otherwise qualified applicants. The only alternative for these individuals is to have their record legally remedied and continuously monitored to assure that records do not resurface."
Shred My Record® helps ex-offenders by opening them up to a world of employment opportunities free from the worry of a re-appearing criminal record that has been previously cleared. Poe is so confident that his Shred My Record® product can make a past criminal record remain in the past that he is backing up his product with a $5,000 Guarantee ensuring that while enrolled in his service, his customers will never be refused a job based solely upon a criminal record.*
EAS Technologies has already helped tens of thousands of people in their quests for record expungement and a more carefree life. According to Poe, "Everyone has the right to get a good job, a decent interest rate or to regain his or her voting rights- one mistake shouldn't be a life sentence."
