Can we require a candidate to answer whether or not they have an active security clearance if the position requires one? It’s my understanding that we can because in order to be considered an Internet Applicant under the OFCCP rules, the applicant needs to indicate that they possess the basic qualifications. If the job requires a security clearance, this would be considered a basic qualification, correct? Thank you in advance!
If the position requires an active security clearance you can definitely ask candidates if they have one and determine them not to be qualified if they do not.
