Are there certain kinds of convictions that will automatically preclude hiring or promotion into a sensitive position?
Individuals with criminal convictions for theft, embezzlement, identity theft or fraud cannot be hired into positions with fiduciary responsibilities. Convictions for child molestation and other sex offenses will automatically preclude an individual from employment that involves direct unsupervised contact with students, outreach programs, or access to residence facilities. Workplace or domestic violence, or other convictions for behaviors that would be inappropriate for specific jobs may also be grounds for denial of employment/promotion. This list is not inclusive, but serves to illustrate the decision-making criteria.
