      Several states have regulated the length and/or the beginning date for this look-back period by state statute.
       
    • Avoid Asking About Convictions in the Application

      While there are exceptions, job postings or announcements generally should not refer to criminal background checks.
       
    • Confirm All Conviction Data From the Original Source

      Any reliable report must search the records available from the courts in the county and/or state where the candidate resided.
