Will this show up on a background check for a hospital? And if so, what will they be allowed to view of the ACD and the UPM Violation? Do they have the right ask me about this violation, or if there was an arrest on an application?
Are hospitals considered government employers? or only hospitals like the VA? Also my ACD is technically "open," I still have a couple months remaining until it is off completely. My rotation starts within the next month, this should still not hinder employment? Will they have to ask me about the violation? This UPM is not a criminal offense in NY and not considered a crime, correct?
Hello,Yes, if you are applying to a private hospital, they could ask about your arrest, however it's open at this time anyway and they can see it for themselves.But a 221.05 is a violation which is not a crime, and yours was dismissed. So you still have no criminal record and for that matter, you were never charged with a crime but a criminal violation.It should not hinder employment.
What is the difference between a crime and a criminal violation? If asked if I have been arrested I would reply yes? but not that I was convicted?
Do hospitals consider non criminal offenses, a violation, reasons for potential denial from employment of a student? Prior to administering a background check, must I provide consent?
