(All that was done was a credit check and The Work Number reports.) Is this any of my business or should I just let it go?
I believe it’s definitely something that management should know, but I would also never want to begrudge someone the chance to make a living.
He’s now using his middle name instead of his first name, but without a doubt is my co-worker.I can’t believe that my company would hire such a person.On the other hand, some crimes say something about someone’s character and judgment, and that doesn’t necessarily change after they’ve served their time.And pedophilia is notorious for being something that doesn’t simply go away after you punish someone for it.
Ultimately, I don’t think you should say anything, but I can understand why you’re struggling with this.
On one hand, I firmly believe that refusing to hire people with criminal convictions in their past is a good way to ensure that those people never get assimilated back into society, increasing the chances that they’ll offend again.
