All Applicants under consideration for a position with the hiring agency to whom they have applied are required to complete Questions 1-8 this Section, and to sign the Applicant Affirmation/Reference release statement.
Applicants for certain jobs will also be required to complete Questions 9-10, to agree to undergo a criminal background check, and agree to certain terms and conditions of employment. Please read the Instructions and Questions carefully before responding.
Instructions: In the event that you have a criminal history, it is important to note that answering “Yes” to a question below is not an automatic bar to employment.
Answering “Yes” may or may not preclude employment depending upon the nature of the criminal offense, its relationship to the position sought, and other factors that must be considered before employment may lawfully be denied based upon prior convictions.
If your response to any of the questions below is “Yes,” please provide an additional explanation and information in the ADDITIONAL REMARKS section. Each response will be reviewed on an individual basis in relation to the specific job for which you are applying. Failure to disclose a prior conviction that does not meet the criteria above may result in denial of employment based upon falsification of the employment application.
Applicants should answer “No” to the following questions if:
a. Your conviction (Felony, Misdemeanor, or Violation) was sealed by a court, or
b. The criminal action or proceeding was terminated in your favor, (e.g. was dismissed, you received an Adjournment in Contemplation of Dismissal and the adjournment period has elapsed, you were acquitted) or
c. The proceeding on the criminal offense resulted in a youthful offender adjudication or juvenile delinquency finding, or
d. After completing a treatment program, your plea to a Felony or Misdemeanor was withdrawn and you were resentenced to a violation or a felony or misdemeanor which was sealed by the court, or the completion of the program resulted in a dismissal of all charges by the court.
