I have a consulting firm and we are responsible for hiring

I have a consulting firm and we are responsible for hiring resources in state and local and government positions across the US. However, we have a young lady that we sent a continent hire letter to and it slipped through the cracks that a background check was completed and she came back with a felony? We want to be careful not to discriminate against a felon, but we cannot hire into a position for a government facility. How do we put this in writer without putting that company at risk?

I was a customer at sprouts last night, while in line an

I was a customer at sprouts last night, while in line an employee was harassing me and may have used a racial slur "white boy". I was simply standing inline, waiting for a price check, when the employee began to harass me. I asked him to please leave, as he was a "bagger" and there was nothing to bag and he was bothering me. I said, "art, can you please leave?" he said, "why?," I said because you are bothering me and harrassing me and I am a paying customer. He said I dont have to leave. So I left to where the item was "an essential oil" to check the price check. it was very stressful friday night after a very long day of work, I just wanted to stop by sprouts to get an oil. This employee starts staring at me with a very serious threatening look, as I came back to the register, I asked him why he hasnt left yet? So I tell him I do not feel safe and I am going to record this, he then swings his fist at me and tries to slap my face, I got very scared and intimitated, no employee was helping, I started yelling and screaming for help, finally management came, gave me a 25$ giftcard and promised that i wouldnt tell cooperate, they also didnt give me my receipt, but i have bank transaction proof, and I was able to get some audio on my camera after they dragged him away. I am very shaken up and I do not know what to do, as I have a young child and I no longer feel safe the shop there, I feel like their cooperate location would not care.

I was fired 60 days after returning to work from FMLA. I

I was fired 60 days after returning to work from FMLA. I returned to work, but did not have a full workload. They told me that I could not work from home on my scheduled day because I did not have enough work and I can't book admin or available time from home. 3 weeks after I returned to work, I was given a PIP. The PIP stated that there were previous conversations regarding performance and attendance back in Dec 2015, Feb 2016 and June 2016. They also stated that I had been requested by HR to complete the necessary documents for a background check because they never did it when I was hired, even though I had already been on the job for over a year and was not trying to promote. I told them I didn't think they could legally make me submit to a background check after the fact. Needless to say, a condition of my corrective action was to allow them to run a background check.I had my annual review on 7/21. I filled out my self evaluation and was very blunt that I was unhappy because I had not been given any additional training to move ahead, though my other co-workers had. I said that I was disappointed because the opportunities that were promised to me never happened. I took a $5 pay cut because I knew what my skills were and that if given the time and training, I would be able to advance. I also submitted my engagement evaluations to my clients that I had been servicing for over a year. All five were excellent; exceeds expectations and meets expectations. However they said that the client I had just taken over 3 weeks prior for a coworker who went on maternity said they gave me a bad review, though I never submitted an evaluation to that client since I had only had them for 3 weeks. That was there reason for letting me go. I also was chatting on our messenger with a coworker telling her that she did not qualify for being exempt and that she should say something. We found out later that our network messages were read by the VP, though I dont know if she read ours. Unlike other employees who have left the company, my toggle time tracking access was cut immediately, keeping me from comparing my timesheets to my paycheck and my employee file was deleted from the server. My aunt is an employment attorney said it sounds like they retaliated against me for taking FMLA and for possibly not wanting to agree to the background check.

13 years ago I received a citation for possession of alcohol underage 21. I was 19 and chose to complete a MIP. This has never affected my being employed. I recently accepted an offer with public school system and will be subject to an FBI fingerprint/background check. I did not disclose this information because I did not think it would matter at the time. What should I do now? Will this show up? Thanks.
