I have a criminal record, but they never asked me about it and I never brought it up. Now I'm told that there will be a background check after my probationary period in order to participate in the benefits program. It was never stated that my employment was contingent upon a criminal background check. If hired, can I be fired for my record later on? I've read that the EEOC's Title VII guidelines have been revised so that a "blanket policy" of any kind regarding criminal records is discriminatory and thus now illegal. It seems Bank of America, Manpower, Radio Shack, Marco's Pizza, and many other big names have been sued for this. However my employment is explicitly described as being "at will". Can I be legally fired for this? What about if I disclose it? Thanks in advance for any help!
