CN: A woman who has worked at Wells Fargo for 5 years was just fired for a crime she committed in the 70s. She did the time for it. They're claiming they are bound by a federal law to not hire/continue to employ people who have a criminal record that includes dishonesty or breach of trust.
WI is an at-will state, so they could have fired her for no reason at all (and honestly that might have been a better idea because now she might turn around and sue). However, if they didn't run a proper background check when they hired her FIVE years ago, I think that's on them. I'm not a lawyer, but I didn't realize there were federal laws about hiring people who have committed crimes. There are people out there who have commited crimes in the past but now hold jobs.
