The University of Wisconsin-Parkside, under the direction of University of Wisconsin System policy, conducts criminal background checks for all newly hired individuals. An individual’s arrest on a pending charge and/or conviction of a violation of the law may be a factor in evaluating potential job performance. An actual check of pending charge and/or conviction records will be conducted only if an applicant is a finalist for the position.
Records of arrest on pending charges and/or convictions will NOT automatically disqualify an applicant from employment. Such information will be considered only if there is a substantial relationship between the circumstances of the conviction and/or pending charge and the position being applied for.
