TERMINATION FOR FAILURE TO DISCLOSE CRIMINAL HISTORY

June 27, 2017  |  Investigative Summaries

We initiated an investigation into an Amtrak train service attendant based out of Raleigh, North Carolina, after the Amtrak Police Department (APD) notified us of an outstanding warrant for the employee’s arrest. During our coordination and initial investigation to assist APD, we reviewed the employee’s online employment application and background check report. As a part of the background check, the employee certified that she did not possess a criminal conviction and had not pleaded guilty, no contest, or nolo contendere to a misdemeanor or a felony. However, we found documentation identifying convictions for pleading guilty in May 2013 to two misdemeanors for larceny and resisting a public officer, which resulted in community service, and in August 2015 for misdemeanor larceny, which resulted in five days of confinement.
