Notices Regarding Use of WCCA
The Wisconsin Courts CCAP case management system displays notices through the WCCA search portal regarding the use of the portal. There is a notice to employers that refusing to hire someone because of an arrest or conviction record not related to the job the applicant is applying for, is a violation of state law. The Wisconsin Courts CCAP is not required to make available on the WCCA all of the case information that is accessible to the public. Therefore, the information provided on the WCCA should not solely be relied upon for employment purposes.
If an individual feels that they have been discriminated against by a prospective employer, they have the right under the Civil Rights Law to file a complaint against that employer. There is a statute of limitations of 300 days to file a complaint. The time starts the day the individual is notified of the action. If there are further questions regarding this statute, you can contact the Division of Workplace Discrimination(DWD). The contact information for the DWD is:
