If the applicant's criminal record cannot be classified or adequately described by the screening agency, PPL may seek additional information from the applicant.
PPL's guidelines are based on statutes, regulations, and studies.
PPL will deny applicants who are the subject of open charges or active warrants with the exception of misdemeanors, such as minor moving violations, failure to pay transit fare, loitering, or like convictions or charges.
Applicants whose applications are requested on the basis of criminal background will be offered the opportunity to dispute the rejection. The Director of Property Management (or designee) will review the dispute and then decide to accept or request the application based on this policy.
