Information on Background Checks and Drug Testing
CDM Smith Inc. and its divisions and subsidiaries (collectively referred to as “CDM Smith”) reserve the right to conduct criminal, employment, education, licensure, and other background investigations, as well as credit and motor vehicle checks, for specific positions. CDM Smith may also perform drug testing for specific roles.
In the United States, background checks are performed after an offer of employment has been made. The timing of background checks on candidates for positions outside the United States will vary according on foreign statutory law, but the background check will never come before an interview.
Before requesting a criminal background check, CDM Smith will conduct interviews with qualified candidates, and no job application submitted prior to such interview will inquire into an applicant’s criminal history. If this position is subject to a background check for any convictions relevant to its responsibilities and requirements, employment will be based on the successful completion of a background investigation, which may include a criminal history.
A candidate’s criminal history does not automatically disqualify them. Furthermore, individuals may be required by CDM Smith or a CDM Smith customer to successfully complete further background checks, such as a motor vehicle record check and drug testing, while on the job.
