A new requirement at an elementary school had fathers get background checked before they could attend the annual father-daughter dance. Some parents took this in stride while others complained it was an invasion of their privacy. This might be too extreme of measures to try and protect children. Since the father lives with the daughter anyway what good is a criminal background check going to do to avoid harm to his daughter? Seems a bit ridiculous and also knowing how many people will be at the dance makes it even more difficult for any crime against children to be made at such an event. Volunteer background checks are a good idea but running a criminal background check on the father of an elementary school’s daughter to attend a dance is flat out ridiculous and too far the other way.

Eventually maybe, but currently it is not practical for Human Resources to perform and retrieve their background checks via a mobile device. Additionally, recent mobile apps used for criminal record retrieval failed to operate within the guidelines of the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). Additionally, criminal records are not formatted for small mobile devices like cell phones. It is not the best interface for accessing and reviewing criminal records data. The security and privacy of this information is also much more vulnerable if retrieved through a mobile device leaving dissemination and alteration of such criminal data in question.

New EEOC Enforcement Guidance Document expresses discrimination concerns of the use of criminal history searches in modern day employment screening practices. The document emphasizes the huge race and national origin disparity shown by the number of arrests; convictions and prison time of minorities verse Whites. This disparity makes it much more difficult for minorities to get jobs and thus increases recidivism based on lack of opportunity continuing the vicious cycle that stagnates the problem and doesn’t seek to fix it.
The Enforcement Guidance states that in the USA as many as 1 in 3 African American men and 1 in 6 Hispanic men are expected to serve time in prison verses only 1 in 17 White men. It is quoted that, “African Americans and Hispanics are arrested at a rate that is 2 to 3 times their proportion of the general population (assuming that current incarceration rates remain unchanged).

The statistics are clear, workplace violence both recorded and under the radar impact business productivity significantly with over 1.5 million work days lost annually. This does not include all the unreported lost days due to workplace harassment and violence. According to the FBI the majority of incidents that employees/managers have to deal with on a daily basis are lesser cases of assaults, domestic violence, stalking, threats, harassment (to include sexual harassment), and physical and/or emotional abuse that make no headlines.
With the facts now being produced it makes more sense now than ever for Human Resource professionals and those involved in the hiring of new employees to put a sound employment screening system in place. Employment background checks performed through a professional third party provider help thwart future workplace violence by discarding potential employees that represent a threat to the workplace environment. Many times background investigation can surface past incidents that provide clear signs of behavior habits that could pose a significant threat to workplace environments. Properly vetting these candidates allows for filtering out of such high risk candidates thus increasing a business’s odds of having a violence and harassment free work place. This saves the company a lot of money over time and provides a safe and sane work environment for all employees.
With the use of criminal background checks as part of modern America’s corporate employment screening programs and with the inaccuracies inherent in the background information retrieval industry it makes sense to check your own background before applying for that new job. Many companies including midsize and small businesses are increasingly utilizing criminal background checks in their employment screening process where in the past they did not.
Even if a person knows they don’t have a criminal history, pulling their own criminal report is still wise to ensure that no errors occurred. For instance someone else’s criminal record could be interpreted or queried from a database as a different person if the name and date of birth are similar or the same. Errors and omissions are very common in the background check industry and if you really want that new job it is best to run a background search on yourself first so you know what the company you’re looking to work for will be looking at when you apply. It is also best to ask the Human Resources department of the company you are applying at for the company they use to do background checks or the process they use to obtain background check information to make sure your pre-interview background check is comparing apples to apples with your potential new employer.
The human care-giving industry especially in-home caregivers have seen little regulation and oversight even when the crime related to them is real. Recent studies show that one in four of accused and convicted caregivers had a criminal record. This is possible because there are no restrictions against home-care workers, you can have a felony conviction and still operate as an in-home caregiver. The good news is that there exists a simple cost effective way to protect your loved ones in need of in-home aid and care. The way is straightforward by running a background check. A criminal background check can help deter repeat offenders and can protect those you care about from harm and abuse. Adequately verifying an in-home caregiver before giving them access to you or your loved ones home will at least build some trust in the person you are granting unmonitored care while you are away. In-home caregivers should be treated like employees as they are and should undergo a background check before they are allowed into your home.
