(All that was done was a credit check and The Work Number reports.) Is this any of my business or should I just let it go?
I believe it’s definitely something that management should know, but I would also never want to begrudge someone the chance to make a living.
I inadvertently found out while doing a search of local registered sex offenders in my area that a very friendly and polite older gentlemen who recently began to work at my company is a registered sex offender for possession of child pornography.
He admitted his guilt, is on probation, and lost his former job working for the court system, according to a newspaper article I dug up.
I’ve been sitting on this question because I can’t come up with an answer I’m fully comfortable with.On a third hand, this man’s current job is presumably not one that brings him into contact with children.He’s now using his middle name instead of his first name, but without a doubt is my co-worker.I can’t believe that my company would hire such a person.
Ultimately, I don’t think you should say anything, but I can understand why you’re struggling with this.On one hand, I firmly believe that refusing to hire people with criminal convictions in their past is a good way to ensure that those people never get assimilated back into society, increasing the chances that they’ll offend again.
