mr brian mickie D restaurants in my area many have the “have you been convicted of a sex offense” question. This is a multi national corporation with big paid lawyers so you bet you $ that they are acting legal somehow even if not to us. It is sad they go that far, but of course the counter argument will always be, it is for “safety” since we hire youngsters or have playgrounds. Social attitude or understanding has to change. Business will often look for what profits them and side with whatever the flavor of the day may be which I do understand (but not agree always with the methods obviously).
