Other Requirements: Candidates who are matched with our site will need to go through Background Check process. The University of Memphis through HR-Workforce Management will conduct background investigations on all faculty, staff, graduate assistants, and temporary applicants recommended for employment. The Disclosure and Authorization Form required by the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) is completed through a third-party vendor. No background check will be initiated until the online authorization form is completed. HR - Workforce Management is responsible for reviewing the results of the background check and determining whether the offense negates the individual from being hired. Most convicted felonies (e.g., aggravated assault, sexual assault, sexual battery, robbery, burglary, auto theft, arson, etc.) constitute a fail in background check. If the candidate does not disclose convictions during the background check process, the individual may be disqualified from consideration. In determining suitability for employment where there is a record of criminal conviction, consideration will be given to such issues as the specific duties of the position, the number of offenses and circumstances of each, how long ago the conviction occurred, whether the circumstances arose out of an employment situation, and the accuracy of the explanation on the application.
