Yes, this is a for-profit, higher education company.
As such, the company takes Title IV funding, state/federal loans/grants for students. I would not consider it a direct government contractor, per se, but a firm involved in serving the goals of higher education which implies some obligations to do so ethically and in the best interests of society.
Management was informed. My response on the "MySafeWorkplace", just checked it today, from the HR and Global Compliance Officer was: "This matter was investigated with all available facts and will be closed".
The problem is that the facts are not available to them given the uniqueness of California Law where the individual likely served time for insurance fraud (he was self-employed immediately after the arrest for 18 months) but that after a seven year period, no information on felonies are provided in background checks.... So, they my company is either unable to get the information that they need or they are unwilling. ?
