  • Depends on the company and infractions you speak of.  Most employers do, I do.  However, my current company only reviews back 7 years.  My previous employer went back 10 years.  Some employers will look only for felonies, some for both felonies and misdemeanors.  The bottomline is that the company's policy for hiring with "infractions" will rule the outcome.  If you are the one hiring and wondering if you should care, don't forget about negligible hiring and the ramifications of.
  • Remember you also have to look at state law. Many states only allow you to consider certain things on background checks.
