Background Experience

†Do not report any conviction that has been sealed, expunged, statutorily eradicated, annulled, impounded, erased, dismissed under the First Offender’s law, pardoned by the Governor or which state law allows you to lawfully deny as set forth below. You are also not required to disclose violations, infractions, misdemeanors or summary offenses.

A conviction will not necessarily be a bar to employment. This information will only be used for job-related purposes consistent with applicable law and is only relevant in determining whether the conviction is related to the job for which you are applying. Factors such as age at the time of the offense(s), recentness of the offense(s), seriousness of the offense(s), nature of the violation(s), its relation, if any, to the job you are seeking, and rehabilitation will be taken into account. Failure to honestly answer these questions will result in discontinued consideration of your application or termination of employment.

Any person whose records were erased within the meaning of these three sections may consider such events to have never occurred and may so swear under oath.
