The Department of Employment Security, through the several free employment
offices, in cooperation with the Department of Corrections, shall seek to provide proper employment opportunities for discharged convicts or
prisoners, and shall assist such discharged prisoners to retain suitable

misrepresentation as to the records of persons for whom employment is
sought, under the provisions of this Section.
The Department of Employment Security through the several free employment
offices shall also co-operate with the Department of Corrections to secure
