I recently had an interview with the county in which I live for a clerk working in the county jail. I had my polygraph test a few days ago and was wondering if the polygraph or the background check comes first?
I can't answer the question because there is no rule. Are you worried about something? Most employers require full and truthful disclosure on job applications. Unless you killed a co-worker or stole from the past employer, you are likely to be better off disclosing now rather than waiting for the record or termination to be discovered. Lying on an application and then getting caught will almost always get you fired and that would be "for cause" which would disqualify you from unemployment benefits.
