 Policy For Hiring Those With Felony Convictions

We received the following response from Veritude after contacting them regarding their hiring policies for those with felony convictions:

“Veritude candidates must pass the Fidelity Investments background check (criminal, employment, education, and often credit).

Items in these categories are assigned a point value, and each role we have for has a certain point threshold which cannot be exceeded. That being said, I believe most felonies would be assigned a point value that would exceed most of these hiring thresholds – making the candidate ineligible in the overwhelming number of cases.

Have They Hired Former Felons?

It is unlikely that Veritude has hired former felons in the past.

Specific Program For Hiring Former Felons

Veritude does not have a specific program for the hiring of those with felony convictions.

Who Makes Hiring Decisions

Hiring decisions are made by both the hiring manager of Veritude with input from their client companies. Company wide guidelines are also followed using the point system described above. Typically, the hiring manager is the final decision maker with Human Resources supporting the manager and ensuring that Federal, State, Local, and company policies are followed.

The Best Way To Secure A Position

Since Veritude does not have a specific program for hiring those with felony convictions the best way to secure employment is by employee referral. Finding someone who works for Veritude that can act as your reference is the best way to overcome the hurdle of having a felony conviction.

If you are unable to find a company referral the best way to apply would be online.
