<[Expired June 1, 1980, pursuant to L.1978, c. 258, § 2.]>
1. The department of correctional services shall maintain a list of inmates who are
eligible for consideration for release on parole or otherwise within twelve months. Such list shall be amended every other month in order to add newly eligible inmates
and to remove from the list inmates who have been discharged from the custody of the
department. Inmates shall be included in such list only upon their own written request. The list shall be known as the “inmate-employment list” and it shall contain the
names of inmates, their home towns, the vocational and educational training programs
completed by the inmates while incarcerated, jobs held by the inmates while incarcerated,
the institution at which the inmate is lodged, and other information the department
feels would be useful to prospective employers of such inmates upon their release. Such list shall be provided, upon written request, to approved prospective employers
who have first submitted information required by the department. The department shall permit approved prospective employers to visit facilities operated
by the department in order to interview inmates whose names appear on the employment
lists for the purpose of possible employment upon the inmate's release. Approved prospective employers wishing to interview inmates must notify the department
in writing. If the department is unable to permit job interviews on the date requested by the
approved prospective employer, it shall provide an alternative date.
2. For the purposes of this section only the term “approved prospective employers”
shall mean those individuals or corporations who have stated an interest in employing
former inmates and have supplied the information requested by the department, which
shall be reviewed by the commissioner of correctional services prior to designating
them as approved prospective employers.
