How-To-Read-An-Employment-Background-Check-Criminal-Record

 


Sometimes the information contained in an employment criminal record background check contains legal terms and criminal record abbreviations that may be difficult to understand.

Bear in mind when evaluating criminal record information contained in a an employment background check that some charges are not nearly as bad as they seem. Examples of this may be found in our site map by clicking here

Also, an employer will want to consider not only the nature of the crime reported but how long ago an offense occurred.

Further, an employer is required in some cases to also consider the direct relevance of the criminal record to the job being applied for.

For an important study by Carnegie-Mellon University which addresses the question of “How Long After An Arrest Is it Safe to Hire Someone With A Criminal Record ?” please see this page in our web site.

Here is an example of a criminal record with personal identifiers removed or changed:

Notations and Explanations have been provided in bold.

Crimes are divided by the seriousness of of the offense into the following categories.

A. Felonies
B. Misdemeanors
C. Infractions

These categories have differing levels of severity and are subdivided.

In general, a felony is a crime that is punishable by a sentence of more than 365 days of incarceration all the way up to death.
(Sentences of longer than 365 days are usually served in state prisons while sentences of less than 365 days are usually served in a county jail.)

Felonies include crimes such as murder, theft, burglary, serious drug possession and or distribution, rape, robbery assaults and kidnapping.

A misdemeanor is generally punishable by less than 365 days in jail.
Misdemeanors charges includes minor theft, minor assault, some forms of drug possession, harassment and serious motor vehicle / driving violations.
