Flu season is coming: Protect yourself and others; get the flu shot

Notice: New Conviction Check Request Form

A new Conviction Check request form is now available that features the following enhancements:

  • New report options that provide the most complete results possible and will be selected based on information provided on the form.
  • The new form ties to our ticketing system, allowing expanded capabilities for both departments and the Division of Human Resources to track and manage requests.
  • A confirmation email will generate when a request is submitted. One major advantage of using the new ticketing system is the ability to reply through the confirmation email if there are future questions about the request.

The new form does require more information, which will allow for more thorough conviction and other pre-employment checks. A Conviction Check Process webpage contains helpful information, frequently asked questions, and more on how to complete the conviction check request form. If you have questions, please contact the HR Service Center at hrservicecenter@vt.edu or 540-231-9331.

There will be no employee premium contribution deducted from your pay on those dates. Read this message from Governor Ralph Northam for more information.
