Employers in Pennsylvania must be careful in how they use information received on an applicant's criminal background check. In the recent case of Hoffman v. Palace Entertainment, No. 12-cv-06165 (E.D. Pa. Mar. 25, 2014), the employer, Dutch Wonderland, was accused of using information regarding the plaintiff's 10-year-old arrest to deny her a position as a security officer.

    When Hershey did the background check on me , for the record, once I explained truthfully the situation in its entirety ( complex legal issue and custody ) they hired me and withdrew there original rescind of employment.They were very professional and the girl whom listened to me and did a through background check was Jessica. I do wish to state that I have offered a nice settlement , wishing to get back to work. I miss my guests that were regulars and yes, I did my job.

    For the record , It was less than about 9 sick calls over a 2 year period , one due to N1H1 --- very sick , and caused my miscarriage. Very crushing to Us and our Families , who wish to remain extremely Private please. The Father is a very nice Iraq Veteran and do NOT like the limelight , so please respect that , but Thank You .
