My question involves a background check in the State of: New York and Texas
I received a felony deferred adjudication in Texas in 1995 and completed it in 2005. I now live in New York and want to apply for either a state, Suffolk county or Town of Brookhaven job. Does anyone know if there are some positions where a criminal background check will not be done? Will they only check New York? Or will they also include Texas where I lived previously?
I can say for a fact that if they check Texas it will come up because I applied for a number of jobs in Texas up until recently, and it always came up--even though I was never convicted and have completed felony probation.
I have researched all that I can and cannot find a factual answer to this question. If anyone has an answer or insight, please help. Thank you very much for your time.
