The 1987 Session of the North Carolina General Assembly enacted legislation prohibiting the fraudulent disclosure and willful nondisclosure of information relating to applications for State employment (N.C.G.S. § 126-30).The statute authorized the Board of Governors to issue regulations to implement this law for all University employees exempt from the State Personnel Act (Chapter 126 of the North Carolina General Statutes).Pursuant to that mandate, the following regulations are hereby adopted.
North Carolina law requires notice to every applicant for State employment that willfully providing false or misleading information or failing to disclosure relevant information shall be grounds for rejection of an application or later disciplinary action or criminal prosecution. Dismissal from employment shall be mandatory in any case in which a false or misleading representation is made in order to meet position qualifications.The employer is required by law to verify an applicant's representations about credentials and other qualifications relevant to employment.By executing this employment application, you authorize the release to the University of North Carolina of any document or information within the possession of a third party, such as an educational institution or licensure board, that may serve to verify any representations made by you in this employment application.
Adopted by the Board of Governors as regulations and not policy.
