OSU Community:

To ensure those in service to the University with security-sensitive access and/or driving as an essential function continue to meet the minimum qualifications for their position, incumbents are required to notify the Office of Human Resources if they are convicted of a crime relevant to their position or if they no longer meet the minimum driver standards.

Failure to report relevant convictions may result in disciplinary action, up to and including termination. If the University receives report of a relevant conviction, a new criminal history check and/or motor vehicle history review may be required to confirm the report.

If you have questions about reporting convictions or the criminal history or motor vehicle history check process, please contact the Office of Human Resources at Employment@oregonstate.edu or by mail to the Attn: Employment Services Manager, 122 Kerr Administration Building, Corvallis, Oregon  97331.
