Abstract: This paper presents the main results of a study that relates information from the prison system with information from the Spanish Social Security in order to study the employability of the former inmates of prisons in Catalonia, Spain who obtained final release from 1/1/2004 to 31/12/2007. The results show that 43. 6% of the ex-prisoners find a job after serving their sentences, but their integration in the labour market tends to be fragile, confirming that it is a very vulnerable group. It was also found that prison work has a favorable effect on employability and that vocational training is could be useful for those who have not previously worked and have no education or job skills.
