Recruitment decision-making following the evaluation of criminal record information is apparent in everyday organizational recruitment decisions across the western world. Specifically in the United Kingdom, employers are legally required to utilize an applicants criminal record in the recruitment decision-making process in cases where the individual may come into contact with vulnerable persons. The most challenging situation a recruitment decision-maker faces is whether or not they allow an ex-offender re-enter society through employment in the labor market. In order to assess how the decision-maker will overcome common obstacles in the decision-making process and make their decision, an evaluation of existing decision-making theories will be presented. By identifying how recruitment decisions are being made in the first instance we may further our knowledge into this particular decision-making process, and in turn, attempt to better manage organizational recruitment challenges.
