The Reintegration of Sex Offenders: Barriers and Opportunities for Employment

Kevin J. Brown, Spencer Jon, Jo Deakin

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The process of reintegration of offenders after release from prison, or during a community sentence, is a key aim of criminal justice policy. This article provides details from recent research that investigated the barriers and opportunities to employment for sex offenders. The authors describe the barriers that are faced by sex offenders and the anxieties that employers experience when employing sex offenders. The authors conclude that the approach taken by the State is less than reintegrative and serves to increase the barriers and reduce the opportunities for employment for sex offenders.
