If I was let go from a bank due to failing to follow procedures but never licensed can FNRA find out when I am starting my licensing registration?

I don’t think so considering you did not have a U4 or a U5 to provide since you were not licensed at the time. The only way for them to find out is if they someone on the inside at that bank who can give them a reference. Other than that you should be good.

I also had a similar case where I was terminated due to nonsecurity related issue. However, I only had Series 63 and it just expired this April. Will this show on my U4 or U5? I dont think I qualified as a RR since 63 is a supplement. But how will my future employer see this when they decide to onboard me?

my question is despite a good interview will they pull my u5? & can failing the 7at a previous firm prevent me from being hired at a new one since I’ve passed it now?

Good morning. I have a similar case where I was terminated from a BD because I didn’t meet the revenue requirements, I just didn’t sell enough. It doesn’t say anything about why I was terminated on Brokercheck. Just on my U5. If I am undergoing a background check as a new hire in a non-securities industry, do I need to disclose why I was terminated? Can my non-security related firm ask for a U5 on me? What about if it is a government sponsored background check?

Good evening. Like the individual above me, I am in a similar situation. I was terminated from a BD for different reasons. Basically, it doesn’t say anything on Brokercheck, but it does on my U5. If I am still in a securities industry getting an initial background check, will they automatically pull the U5 form? Thanks.

I was terminated as a licensed banker by WF about 8 years ago. They put a note on my U4 stating that I was terminated for reasons unrelated to investments, but then added reason for termination as improper use of referral credit, or something like that. I was later hired by another bank but was not allowed to get licensed. I'm now interviewing with several banks for unlicensed positions, will that issue come up and rescind the job offer?
