Whatever he does make sure he discloses it... we had a guy start recently and was fired 2 days later due to a prior assault conviction when he said "no" to the "Have you ever been convicted of a felony?" question.

I'm in Washington but I'm sure this applies to every state.

And if he had answered Yes to the question, would it have made any difference? That's the big question and the dilemma!

By answering No, and it was disovered much later, after this person had prooved himself, the employer might have had 2nd thoughts about firing a good worker!

It was discovered when the background check came back... With my employer it wouldn't have made a difference. They don't care how good of a worker you are.... violate policy and lose your job.

Still, being up front about it wouldn't have wasted everyone's time and you have a better chance of not being the shown the door... Some employers may have been OK with it if it was disclosed up front.
