Check YES if the position requires a criminal history check. Specific guidelines are available to assist you in determining whether or not a criminal history check should be required for a position.

If a criminal history check is required for a position, it becomes a minimum qualification for the position. List the requirement in the Minimum/Required Qualification section of the Position Details page of your action as follows:

This position is designated as a critical or security-sensitive position; therefore, the incumbent must successfully complete a Criminal History Check and be determined to be position qualified as per OAR 576-055-0000 et seq. Incumbents are required to self-report convictions and those in Youth Programs may have additional Criminal History Checks every 24 months.

The Criminal History Check process may begin once the final candidate(s) has been identified and the completed Criminal History Check Disclosure Notice and Release (link to release) has been returned to:

Office of Human Resources
122 Kerr Admin Bldg.
Corvallis, OR 97331-2132

Attn: Michele Spaulding

If satisfactory Criminal History Check results have not been reported prior to the offer, the offer must be contingent upon satisfactory Criminal History Check results. The applicant CANNOT BEGIN WORKING IN THE POSITION UNTIL SATISFACTORY RESULTS HAVE BEEN REPORTED. This applies to ALL positions, even temporary positions.

The supervisor will be notified by OHR when the check is complete. Any fees associated with the criminal history check are the responsibility of the hiring department.
