If the application asks for any criminal history, and you lie about your history, you'll likely be fired for lying on the application if they find out.


Yes. The employer wants to know about ANY felony.


No. It depends on the local laws. In most places, if the felony was over 10 years ago, you are not legally culpable to admit it on an application. Or if it was not drug related.

Also, almost no employer is actually going to do a background check on you. They are simply relying on your honesty.

If you have a felony in one state do you have to put it on a job application in another?

yes Absolutely YES. If you lie, and your employer finds out you can be fired for falsifying your application. By lying, you are proving that you haven't changed your ways, or learned from your mistakes. Remember that your felony status is recorded at the Federal level (via NCIC and the FBI) Simple background investigations almost always query these or similar data banks. You may not get the job because you listed a felony, but you will almost always get fired for lying on an application. According to EEOC Compliance laws set by the U.S. Government, places of employment can ask if the applicant has been convicted of a felony and other information if the felony is job related. However, they cannot ask if the applicant has ever been arrested. (An arrest does not prove guilt.) Also they cannot ask for information regarding a conviction that is NOT job related.

Depends on the application. If it stipulates a time period then only within that time period. Example: Have you been convicted of a felony in the last 7 years? In the above example if you were convicted of a felony 5 years ago you have to answer yes. If you were convicted of a felony 10 years ago you can answer no. If the question asks "Have you ever been convicted of a felony?" and you have, reguardless of the amount of time that has passed, then you have to answer yes.
