When employment prohibited
Correction (COR) CHAPTER 43, ARTICLE 27
§ 874. When employment prohibited. (a) No employment under the work
release program for any prisoner shall be approved if:

(1) it is ascertained by the sheriff that such employment will result
in the displacement of employed workers, or be applied in skills, crafts
or trades in which there is a surplus of available labor in the
locality, except in the case of a prisoner who is to be employed by an
employer for whom he was employed as a free person prior to the
commencement of his sentence, and;

(2) the rates of pay and other conditions of employment are not at
least equal to those paid or provided for work of a similar nature in
the locality in which the work is to be performed.

(b) The state department of labor shall exercise the same supervision
over conditions of employment for prisoners participating in the work
release program as such department does over conditions of employment
for free persons.

(c) In no event shall any work release program be permitted when there
is any labor strike or lock-out in the establishment in which the
prisoner is, or is to be, employed.
