Re: Discharge For Falsification on employment applicaton
Posted by Carol on 5/06/09
If this is your only offense, contact a criminal defense attorney
in your area to have your record expunged. The problem is that
the employer does not buy your explanation that you "forgot."
It is kind of hard to forget that you were charged with a crime
if you have never been charged before or after. What they
probably are thinking is: she didn't think we'd find out so she
didn't tell us. we can't trust her.
most hospitals purge their employment records after 10 years or so
if they're big. But the best thing is to be completely up front
with a new employer. go somewhere else, that hospital is just
not going to hire you. nursing homes (yes, I know, crappy work
and pay but a job nonetheless and the patients really do need good
care) are an option. work somewhere else, establish your
credibility and trustworthiness again and then try case again. and
I wouldn't use your real name on a board like this. good luck.
