Instructions for Answering this Question:

California Applicants: Do not identify any convictions that have been sealed, expunged or statutorily eradicated. You may omit any convictions for the possession of marijuana (except for convictions for the possession of marijuana on school grounds or possession of concentrated cannabis) that are more than two (2) years old, and any information concerning a referral to, and participation in, any pretrial or post trial diversion program.

Illinois Applicants: You are not obligated to disclose sealed or expunged records of conviction or arrest.

New York Applicants: Do not include any criminal proceeding that terminated in your favor; any criminal proceeding that terminated in a “youthful offender adjudication;” or a conviction that has already been sealed by the court. An ex-offender who is denied employment may, upon written request, receive a statement of the reason(s) for denial within thirty (30) days of the applicant’s request for such information.

Pennsylvania Applicants: You are not required to disclose any convictions that have been expunged from your record. An applicant who is denied employment based in whole or in part on criminal history will be notified in writing. Note: No applicant will be denied employment solely on the grounds of conviction of a criminal offense. The nature of the offense, the date of the offense, the surrounding circumstances, the substantial relation to the position’s function and qualifications, and the business necessity of any exclusion when required by law will be considered when making any employment decisions.
