I will shortly be applying with a federal agency in the

I will shortly be applying for employment with a federal agency in the United States. This agency conducts an extremely thorough background check. At one of my previous part-time jobs in 2010, I was accused of sexual harassment for having called a coworker on her cell when I was drunk. A short investigation was conducted, and I was given probation, and that was the end of it. The incident was noted in my work file. I am legally obligated to put down all of my previous employment on my application to this federal agency, which has extremely high standards that it demands of its employees. It is a certainty that they will call my previous workplace and ask thorough questions about my conduct. Is there any way legally I can protect the information about the previous sexual harassment accusation so that my former employer is legally obligated to refrain from disclosing it to this federal agency?

I pled guilty to Agg Assault (dui auto accident. No

I pled guilty to Agg Assault (dui auto accident. No life-threatening injury) Jan 2007. I was evaluated for substance abuse counseling and found not to need it. (accident was an anomaly) That judgement was vacated in 2016. I was denied an SF-85P in 2010. Prosecuting Attorney (***** ***** Arizona) was disbarred with prejudice for ethics violations in office. I received 3 yrs probation. Was released in 18 months. BK in 2010 due to the conviction and loss of job. No other arrests or convictions in 65 year lifetime. Q: Is there a way to get the SF-85P decision appealed based on new evidence. I am unemployed, and 1/2 of my career was working for defense contractors. I was a CFO at time of conviction. Thank you!

My question pertains to background checks and job

My question pertains to background checks and job applications. I want to know what practices an employer uses to do a back ground check. How far back to employers go, etc. I unfortunately got into trouble over 11 years ago...working to get my record cleared now and am nearing the finish, however I am likely being laid off very soon - before my record is cleared. I'm deathly afraid of an employer doing a background check. I'm in Washington State and I believe applications state "do not list any conviction that is 10 years or older" I would state no as it happened in 2005 but will anything still come up? Thank you.
