Andre Smith answered this question

Can you elect to not hire someone based on what you find?

Not sure what the law says about your particular case, but when I am hiring I am not looking just for the best person for the job. Nope. I look at everything I think might influence my future employee. So if you fear for your own, and safety of your employees you can elect not to hire.
