Are Employers Ever Required to Background Screen Employees?

Depending on your business, there may be requirements in state or local laws and/or licensing that require screening of employees. This would most likely occur if you provide services to vulnerable populations (such as youth, the elderly, or disabled). You may also have contractual obligations imposed by your insurance carrier, or if you contract to use any facilities owned by your city or county government. Government facilities that serve vulnerable populations often have clauses in their contracts requiring screening of all personnel using the facility.
