If your company does criminal background checks, they presumably know about this man’s past and hired him anyway.It’s possible that they discussed it with him and that conversation was convincing to them that he was safe to hire.
I inadvertently found out while doing a search of local registered sex offenders in my area that a very friendly and polite older gentlemen who recently began to work at my company is a registered sex offender for possession of child pornography.
He admitted his guilt, is on probation, and lost his former job working for the court system, according to a newspaper article I dug up.
He’s now using his middle name instead of his first name, but without a doubt is my co-worker.
I can’t believe that my company would hire such a person.
Our department of 85 are, for the most part, a very family-centered group of proud parents and grandparents that would have this gentlemen’s head if they ever found out. I honestly don’t think my company knows this information.
I work for a very large company that has multiple offices in nearly every state that outsources all preemployment paperwork and background checks to an outside firm on the other side of the U. I was hired about three months ago and know for a fact that none of my references or former companies were contacted.
(All that was done was a credit check and The Work Number reports.) Is this any of my business or should I just let it go?
I believe it’s definitely something that management should know, but I would also never want to begrudge someone the chance to make a living.
Do I inform management or keep this information to myself?
