Federal and state regulations are changing with practically every lawsuit and it can be a challenge to stay abreast of the latest information. In order to take the education even further, we've done some of the work for you, providing free sample templates and other forms that can be used to help with background screening practices. One more template is now available - a free sample background check policy.
Sample Background Check Policy
A background check policy is the best way to ensure the company or persons obtaining the background check are aware of the rights of the applicant and have dictated any expectations with regards to consent, approval, retrieval of information and what happens to that information after it has been obtained. Having this policy readily available for distribution to applicants is yet another way to make sure your bases are covered.
