Employment background check

If you have an eight-year-old sole conviction for drunk and disorderly and a potential employer is about to conduct a “criminal background check” on you and franchising out that task to a third party company, will the case be uncovered?

Reading between the lines of this listener’s question is that he/she is proposing to conceal this conviction.  I’d have to advise against that because you are making a material misrepresentation to your employer which will not give you security of tenure in employment if you get the job.

To deal with the specific question “will the case be uncovered” – I don’t know, but given the way private detectives work with can access Garda records I suspect that it will.

The issues raised in the answer to this NewsTalk listener's question are dealt with in a general way as can only be the case on live radio. Before relying on the advice given in this answer, whether you heard the broadcast or are for the first time reading the issues here please do not rely on the broad advice given. For a detailed professional opinion please consult a qualified legal advisor and for further details read our disclaimer on the Home Page.
