New Jersey Revised Statutes § 17:9a-18.1 - Persons Ineligible To Serve As Officer, Director, Employee.

17:9A-18.1 Persons ineligible to serve as officer, director, employee.

1.Except with the written consent of the commissioner, no person shall serve as an officer, director or employee of a bank, savings bank or bank holding company if (a) that person is convicted of any crime involving dishonesty or breach of trust, or (b) that person is prohibited from serving or continuing to serve in such capacity pursuant to 12 U.S.C. s.1829.

Any person seeking employment as an officer, director, or employee of a bank, savings bank or bank holding company shall submit to the commissioner the person's name, address, fingerprints and written consent for a criminal history record background check to be performed; provided, however, that this requirement may be waived by the commissioner if the person provides satisfactory proof that such a criminal history record background check has been performed by a federal regulator. The commissioner is hereby authorized to exchange fingerprint data with and receive criminal history record information from the State Bureau of Identification in the Division of State Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation consistent with applicable State and federal laws, rules and regulations, for the purposes of facilitating determinations concerning licensure eligibility. The applicant shall bear the cost for the criminal history record background check, including all costs of administering and processing the check. The Division of State Police shall promptly notify the commissioner in the event a current holder of a license or prospective applicant, who was the subject of a criminal history record background check pursuant to this section, is arrested for a crime or offense in this State after the date the background check was performed.
