If I have criminal convictions, can I wait until the employment interview to provide details?
No. ALL misdemeanor and felony criminal convictions must be disclosed. This includes convictions that occurred a long time prior to the application. A separate Sworn Statement form must be completed for each conviction. This information is reviewed in accordance with law to determine whether the conviction(s) disqualify the individual from prospective employment. While most convictions are not disqualifying, all must be reviewed to determine whether they adversely affect an applicant’s fitness for appointment. It is important that the information provided be accurate and complete.
