I have a potential new hire that is currently going through the background check process. We think he'll be a great fit for the company and are ready to move forward with hiring him. However, a couple red flags have come up on his background check. They are listed from over 10 years ago, and it appears there is nothing since then. The business we are in is governed by the State and ethics is a big part of our position. From getting to know him, I feel like I would just ignore the old stuff and move on. However, I'm concerned about a potential audit by the State and his background being called into question. My thought is to ask him to write up something that goes over what the issue was and how he resolved it; I would just keep this in his file and would have it available for the State if it should be brought up. However, I'm not sure I can legally do that. Is that a violation of his privacy? Is it inappropriate for me to ask of him? Would love to know all of your thoughts!
