I wouldn't disclose anything that isn't asked. However ... If they ask if you have a criminal background of any kind you need to tell them. You can't lie. If the job is in banking and they need a credit check and you've filed bankruptcy then they have a right to know that, unfortunately. You NEVER *have to* disclose information such as past relationship history, your marital status, information about your kids, why you decided to move to another state, etc. If you're trying to "hide" a past job, beware. I applied for unemployment compensation last year and the employment commission interviewed me and the rep had my EXACT employment history from the past TWENTY YEARS!!!!! ~ T
