When asked on an employment application if you have ever been convicted of a felony or misdemeanor - is a minor misdemeanor the same as a misdemeanor, or is it a lesser charge that does not have to be disclosed?
JA: Was this discussed with a manager or HR?
Customer: No - it was a question on an application for a grad school clinical that was arranged by my grad school. I was already assigned to the clinical, but I was sent this paperwork to complete before my start date.
JA: Is the employment "at will
," union, full time, or part time?
Customer: The clinical is for 8 weeks (38 hours per week), and it is unpaid. It is part of a 3 year grad school program. I am a full time grad student.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: I also want to know if the minor misdemeanor must be disclosed on the application for the clinical site (a hospital), and if a minor misdemeanor would show up on background checks or FBI checks.
