Please carefully read this information and answer all questions fully and truthfully.
A criminal conviction does not automatically prevent someone from being employed at Commerce. However, we cannot employ anyone who has been convicted of most crimes (whether
misdemeanors or felonies) involving:
Dishonesty or dishonest acts
Breach of trust
Illegal manufacture, sale, distribution or trafficking in controlled substances
We also cannot employ anyone who has avoided a conviction for any of the above (whether
misdemeanors or felonies) by participating in a pre-trial diversion or similar program.
Commerce Bank fingerprints all employees as part of the new hire process and will receive a background report containing criminal history records. At its discretion, Commerce may choose not to employ individuals who have been convicted of crimes other than those listed above as revealed by background checks or other legitimate sources. Commerce will consider all relevant factors, including but not necessarily limited to, the nature of the conviction, the date of the conviction, the position being sought, and any additional explanation the candidate for employment provides.
All employees at Commerce must be eligible to be covered by our blanket bond coverage. Failure to truthfully answer these background questions may in itself be considered a dishonest act that would make an employee not eligible for coverage and result in termination of employment.
Please carefully read the background questions in full before responding.
Question #1 asks about convictions of the crimes specified above whether misdemeanors or felonies (dishonesty, breach of trust, money laundering, illegal manufacture, sale, distribution of or trafficking in controlled substances).
Question #2 asks about various types of pre-trial diversion programs for those same crimes (dishonesty, breach of trust, money laundering, illegal manufacture, sale, distribution of or trafficking in controlled substances) whether misdemeanors or felonies. Discuss any questions or concerns you may have with a representative of Human Resources.
When answering these questions, you do not need to disclose information for convictions or records that have been expunged, sealed or impounded by the court of original jurisdiction. However, it’s your responsibility to have confirmed with the court or other appropriate entity that records are accurate.
Again, please read this information carefully before you respond.
1) Have you ever been convicted of a crime of dishonesty, breach of trust, money laundering or the illegal manufacture, sale, distribution of or trafficking in controlled substances (whether a felony or misdemeanor)?
Convicted of a crime?:
If you answered yes, please provide details including the nature of the conviction(s) and date(s):
If you answered yes:
2) Have you ever entered a pretrial diversion (or similar programs such as suspended imposition of sentence or suspended imposition of judgment) in connection with a crime of dishonesty, breach of trust, money laundering or the illegal manufacture, sale, distribution of or trafficking in controlled substances (whether a felony or misdemeanor)?
If you answered yes, please provide details including the nature of the conviction(s) and date(s):
If you answered yes:
Please carefully review your responses. Employment with Commerce is contingent upon a satisfactory
background check that will reveal records of convictions as well as participation in diversion (or similar) programs. It’s important that you have truthfully answered all of these questions. You are responsible to have confirmed with the court or other appropriate entity that your records are accurate.
Your resume can be uploaded in any of the following formats: DOC, DOCX, RTF, PDF, TXT, HTML. PLEASE make sure your file name does not contain special characters such as .,/,-,_,#, etc etc, files containing those characters sometimes have problems uploading.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Veteran Status
This employer is a Government contractor subject to the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974, as amended by the Jobs for Veterans Act of 2002, 38 U.S.C. 4212 (VEVRAA), which requires Government contractors to take affirmative action to employ and advance in employment: (1) disabled veterans; (2) recently separated veterans; (3) active duty wartime or campaign badge veterans; and (4) Armed Forces service medal veterans. These classifications are defined as follows:
A ‘‘disabled veteran’’ is one of the following:
a veteran of the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service who is entitled to compensation (or who but for the receipt of military retired pay would be entitled to compensation) under laws administered by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs; or
a person who was discharged or released from active duty because of a service connected disability.
A ‘‘recently separated veteran’’ means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran’s discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.
An ‘‘active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran’’ means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.
An ‘‘Armed forces service medal veteran’’ means a veteran who, while serving on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service, participated in a United States military operation for which an Armed Forces service medal was awarded pursuant to Executive Order 12985. Protected veterans may have additional rights under USERRA—the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act. In particular, if you were absent from employment in order to perform service in the uniformed service, you may be entitled to be reemployed by your employer in the position you would have obtained with reasonable certainty if not for the absence due to service. For more information, call the U.S. Department of Labor’s Veterans Employment and Training Service (VETS), toll-free, at 1–866–4–USA–DOL.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability Form CC-305 OMB Control Number 1250-0005 Expires 1/31/2017
Why are you being asked to complete this form?
Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities.
i To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way. If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.
How do I know if I have a disability?
You are considered to have a disability if you have a physical or mental impairment or medical condition that substantially limits a major life activity, or if you have a history or record of such an impairment or medical condition. Disabilities include, but are not limited to:
Reasonable Accommodation Notice

Please tell us if you require a reasonable accommodation to apply for a job or to perform your job. Examples of reasonable accommodation include making a change to the application process or work procedures, providing documents in an alternate format, using a sign language interpreter, or using specialized equipment.
