Unable to cast object of type 'System.Data.DataRowView' to type 'System.Windows.Controls.CheckBox'.

           lstEmployees.DataContext = SelJobsCat();
private void btnShowSelectedItems_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)

Use the CheckBoxList's GetItemChecked or GetItemCheckState method

for (int i = 0; i < lstEmployees.Items.Count; i++)
  if (clbIncludes.GetItemChecked(i))
    System.Windows.MessageBox.Show((item.Content + " is checked."));
    // Do unselected stuff

or if you want to only include actually checked items:
if (stEmployees.GetItemCheckState(i) == CheckState.Checked)
or listitem.selected:
foreach (ListItem listItem in lstEmployees.Items)
    if (listItem.Selected) {
        //do some work
    else {
        //do some work
