Authorization to conduct a background check
The applicant can be rejected if the applicant discloses or if a criminal history report reveals that the applicant has:
Any felony convictions in the last seven years. However, exceptions may be considered in truly unusual cases where the conviction does not reflect upon the applicant’s suitability for employment.
Any misdemeanor convictions in the last seven years involving violence, theft, drugs, or sexual misconduct. Again, exceptional cases may be considered. If an applicant has been arrested (but not convicted) in the last seven years for any crime that would have made him/her unacceptable for employment by LIFT Career Resource Center if the applicant had been convicted, LIFT Career Resource Center will make a reasonable effort to determine if the applicant actually committed the offense.
By signing this form you are authorizing Lift Career Resource Center (LIFT) to perform a background investigation on you and acknowledge that if a Mentor position is offered it is contingent on the satisfactory completion of the background investigation check process. By signing this form you authorize LIFT to release to you copies of your criminal history record, including fingerprint results, should this information be used to disqualify you from a volunteer position. Individuals refusing to cooperate in any portion of the background investigation process are not eligible to participate in our program as a volunteer.
