Depending on the option selected, you may be required
to write a justification on the confirmation page.
A "contingent" hire enables the hiring department to make a job offer contingent
upon successful completion of a background check. The "pro" is that we can start an
employee faster with this option (potentially even before the background check is
completed). The "con" is the department will not receive confirmation of the background
investigation unless there is an issue. Additionally the University reserves the right
to terminate employment with the applicant should the results of the background
investigation not be satisfactory.
With a "standard" hire, HR will conduct the background check and confirm the background
investigation is satisfactory prior to issuing an employment agreement. The "con" is that
the start date may be delayed by up to 10 business days. Even with the additional processing time,
some positions based on access, security, etc. should proceed with a standard hire.
This is determined by the department director and/or AVP/SLT member.
If your applicant has disclosed they have a criminal history on their
UCF application, you will be required to select the radio button to
the right and also provide justification on the confirmation page how
the criminal charge should not negatively affect their candidacy.
