TERMINATION FOR FAILURE TO DISCLOSE CRIMINAL HISTORY
We initiated an investigation after we received an allegation that an Amtrak Electrician in Los Angeles, California, had a lengthy criminal history and had failed to disclose it on his Amtrak background investigation form. We found that the employee failed to disclose a criminal conviction during his hiring process in October 2014. As a part of his background check, the employee certified that he did not possess criminal convictions and had not pleaded guilty, no contest, or nolo contendere to a misdemeanor or a felony. However, we found documentation identifying criminal convictions for two felony counts of forgery, for which he pleaded guilty.
