Lay Employee Background Checks

Background checks are required for paid employees and those who work regularly with youth or children at congregations. An updated background check should be conducted every five years.

A number of providers offer Criminal Background Checks, in addition to optional screenings such as Credit, Driving Records, etc: we recommend First Advantage, GoodHire, and Intellicorp. First Advantage offers one-time background check options without a subscription or setup fee if you do not anticipate needing many checks run: and Select Small Business > Basic Screening > Applicant Submission.
