DISQUALIFICATIONS
There are very few automatic bases for rejection. Even issues of prior misconduct, employee terminations, and arrest
are usually not, in and of themselves, automatically disqualifying. Hover, deliberate misstatements or omissions can and
often will results in your application being rejected, regardless of the nature or reason for the misstatements/omissions.
In fact, the number one reason individuals “fail” background investigations is because they deliberately withhold or
misrepresent job-relevant information from their prospective employer.
This personal history statement is a governmental document. Be truthful, as there are criminal consequences for lying
on a governmental document.
Once you begin:
Type or neatly print, in ink, responses to all items and questions. If a question does not apply to you, write “N/A”
(not applicable) in the space provided for your response. If you cannot obtain or remember certain information,
indicate so in your response.
If you need additional space for your answers, attach additional sheet as needed. Be sure to indicate what question
number and page this refers to.
Be as complete, honest and specific as possible in your response.
