Good Morning Todd,
Below is our Criminal Background and Credit Record Check policy.
Criminal Background and Credit Record Checks
A criminal background check (CBC) discloses whether an individual has a history
of criminal activity. A credit report provides information on an individual's
history of credit-related activity, including current and previous debts,
payments, and other relevant information.
Criminal background checks and credit reports will be used to verify that
applicants for employment at Wake Technical Community College are qualified for
To maintain a safe work environment, Wake Technical Community College will
conduct criminal background checks on all candidates recommended for employment
who are not currently employed by the College. In addition to criminal
background checks, credit reports will be obtained for those candidates seeking
positions that include access to cash, checks, credit card transactions, or
bank account information.
As part of the application process, the applicant will be required to sign a
form authorizing a criminal background check and credit report; failure to do
so will result in the application being denied. If an applicant for employment
omits information or gives false or misleading information about his or her
criminal history on any application-related document, that applicant may not be
offered employment. If an applicant who has omitted information or given false
or misleading information about his or her criminal history has been hired or
offered employment based on results of a background check or credit report, he
or she will be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including dismissal,
or the offer of employment will be withdrawn, as applicable.
Current Wake Tech employees are not subject to criminal background checks.
Should an employee have a lapse in employment for any amount of time, and the
employee has not had an initial CBC, upon the employees rehire at the College,
they are subject to a criminal background check. Should the employee experience
another lapse in employment, the results of the previous background check will
be valid for 18 months.
The results of criminal convictions will be considered in hiring, dismissal,
disciplinary, and other personnel decisions. If an applicant's or employee's
history indicates that he or she poses a threat to the physical safety of
students or personnel, or that he or she has demonstrated insufficient
integrity, honesty, ethics, or other traits to fulfill his or her duties as an
employee, the offer of employment will be withdrawn or the employment will be
terminated. All employees are hired conditionally, pending review of the
criminal background check or of the criminal background check and credit report.
In the event that an adverse employment decision proposed or made by Wake Tech
with respect to any applicant or employee is based in any part on the credit
report received by the college, Wake Tech will provide a pre-adverse action
disclosure and/or adverse action notification in accordance with the
requirements of the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act. All credit reports
received by Wake Tech on applicants or employees will be maintained in a secure
location and disposed of within five (5) years of the date of receipt.
Each employee is required to notify his or her immediate supervisor and the
director of Human Resources within five (5) calendar days after any criminal
arrest, indictment, charge, conviction, guilty plea, or plea of no contest,
other than those relating to minor traffic violations. Any employee who is
aware of any criminal arrest, indictment, charge, conviction, guilty plea, or
plea of no contest of another employee, other than those relating to minor
traffic violations, should notify the appropriate Human Resources
