Probation Employment Liaison:
The Livingston County Probation Department recognizes the importance of sustained employment for individuals under community supervision. Employment provides individuals a means to self-sufficiency and the ability to support their families, as well as the capacity to structure their time in positive ways.
Probation also understands the needs of area employers and their ability to ask questions of probation officers about work schedules and other work environment related issues.
Accordingly, the Livingston County Probation Department has designated a single point of contact or Probation Employment Liaison officer to communicate with area employers.
Please feel free to contact Probation Director, Lynne Mignemi, at (585) 243-7190 or via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are an area employer who has any general questions about probation conditions relating to employment, employment opportunities for individuals on probation, or if you have any other employment related questions or concerns.
On a related note, the NYS Department of Labor offers information for both job seekers and employers on some of the incentives and options available to individuals with known barriers to employment that include having a criminal history.
