Well see, here's the thing...I wouldn't even take note of a possession charge older than 3 years on a person's background check. An assault charge, however, is a deal breaker especially if it's in concert with domestic violence (I might reconsider if it was a REALLY old charge and it was a bar fight situation). Any kind of sexual offense is going to find their file in the trash; I don't care if it was just urinating in public. It's too much of a liability to hire someone who has that kind of record if something were to happen while they were at work. It would immediately come back on our organization that we knew he was a sex offender. You can blame the litigious nature of our society for that one, not the background check.Such primitive thinking, and backwards to boot - think about the impact on said person if after being let out of jail, paying his debt to society, etc he was treated like **** - even if it wasn't something like rape or murder. Bet he'd be REALLY motivated to steer clear of crime now.
It's not my concern how society treats a candidate. It's my concern to pick the best candidate possible while considering things like liability issues. Criminal background checks will ALWAYS be done as long as I am in charge at work.
I work with four software developers who don't have criminal records. One of them is a roller derby gal who is also a scuba diver. Another one is a drummer in a band and actually just got back from 2 weeks of touring with them. A third one wanders around here from time to time with Mickey Mouse feet and hands on just for ****s and giggles. He was also at the same Dead concert I was at in '95 right before Jerry died. Our project manager is an Irishman (need I really say more? ) And then there's me. I'd say we're a pretty damn 'colorful' bunch, hardly wallflowers but yet not ex-convicts.
