Falsification of application materials, including failure to disclose felony convictions, is grounds for termination of employment or non-selection as an applicant for employment.

For positions that require the operation of a College vehicle, a conviction shall include misdemeanor traffic violations.
Pr-502.1.3 College employees are required to notify the Human Resources Department within five (5) days following a conviction for a felony of any type.
