In accordance with federal and state laws, Nicolet College does not discriminate against employees on the basis of arrest or conviction record.  However, criminal charges and/or a conviction record that is determined to be substantially related to a particular position held by an employee will require the College to take appropriate action.

If an employee is arrested and/or charged with a criminal offense, the employee must notify the Director of Human Resources within 48 hours or as soon as practicable thereafter.  Failure to do so will result in appropriate disciplinary action up to and including termination.

If an employee is convicted of a criminal charge, the employee must notify the Director of Human Resources within five (5) days after the conviction.  Failure to provide this notification in the required timeline will result in appropriate disciplinary action up to and including termination.
