FAQ - Review Committee
The Committee will complete its review within seven days of receiving notification of a DOJ/FBI background check with convictions.
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.
No. If there is a criminal conviction, the Criminal Background Check Review Committee will review the results and make the final determination regarding the individual's suitability for employment in the position. The Review Committee may recommend additional controls that a department would need to implement before employing, promoting, or reclassifying a person convicted of a crime. Consideration will be given to the specific duties of the position, the number of offenses and circumstances of each, and whether the convictions were disclosed on the application.
Yes. The Committee reviews all criminal background checks in which convictions are found and makes the final determinations regarding the suitability of individuals for specific positions.
