Iowa is a middle of the road state when it comes to being employer-friendly or employee-friendly. For example, Iowa has a law that governs recruiting practices for certain employers that actively recruit non-English speaking employees. Under another Iowa law, a job application in this state may ask about criminal history, but an applicant may answer in a way that acts like erased or expunged history never existed.
