The Need For Criminal History Background Checks

The ability to obtain access to criminal history records has become increasingly important for a variety of reasons. Employers in the private sector have a responsibility to ascertain whether a job candidate has a background which could jeopardize the company’s clients, employees, or business dealings. Failure to exercise due diligence in researching a potential employee’s background as it pertains to the position being sought can result in serious liability.

Public employers face the same situation, particularly in instances where public safety or government security clearance is an issue. In recent years, especially, the counter-terrorism efforts of the government has lead to an increase in criminal history screening.

Those who work in the health care sector dealing with disabled, vulnerable, or elderly persons are invariably subject to criminal screening, as are applicants for teaching positions. Volunteers, as well, are more often than not investigated for a criminal background, especially those dealing with children or the elderly or disabled.

Privacy/Fairness in Reporting

With greater need for criminal history checks also comes greater concern for privacy of individuals and fairness in reporting. When obtaining criminal background information for a potential employee or volunteer, great care must be exercised that the information is accurate and current. If there is a criminal background, the individual concerned should have the right to be made aware of the contents of the report to ensure that they are being represented fairly.

In addition, consideration should be given for those who have served time and undergone rehabilitation. If the nature of the criminal history has no relevance to the position being sought, employers need to exercise care in discrimination. If an applicant is otherwise qualified for a job, he or she may not be turned down based on a criminal background that has no bearing on job duties or responsibilities. Former convicts who are re-entering society merit the opportunity to become productive members of their communities, provided their criminal background does not affect the responsibilities of their job.

Sources for Obtaining Criminal History Information

The most common sources for criminal background checks are private sector criminal history databases and screening services. For a fee, registered users may conduct a database search based on public records which provides everything from driver’s license history to criminal convictions. Background screening services are also available; these services utilize databases and in-person records checks to provide information to their clients. Private individuals may also conduct direct searches of public court records, although not all information is available to the general public.

The FBI and local law enforcement agencies also maintain their own records, although in some cases law enforcement may subscribe to a private-sector database.

With improvements in technology and global information resources, criminal histories are increasingly available to a growing number of entities, and background checks are becoming widespread and routine.

A team of British journalists analyzed over 400.000 logs made by the US military in Iraq. These logs were provided by Wikileaks and they describe horrific cases of murder, torture and violent aggression against innocent civilians in Iraq perpetrated by the US army. Dispatches exposes the full and unreported horror of the Iraqi conflict and its aftermath. The programme reveals the true scale of civilian casualties, and allegations that after the scandal of Abu Ghraib, American soldiers continued to abuse prisoners; and that US forces did not systematically intervene in the torture and murder of detainees by the Iraqi security services. The programme also features previously unreported material of insurgents being killed while trying to surrender. Channel 4 is the only UK broadcaster to have been given access to nearly 400000 secret military significant activities reports (SIGACTS) logged by the US military in Iraq between 2004 and 2009. These reports tell the story of the war and occupation which the US military did not want the world to know. www.channel4.com www.iraqwarlogs.com www.wikileaks.org www.channel4.com

    Most ordinary US Americans have as much evil intent towards other independent nations as their leaders. They are the spitting image of their leaders. This is the reason they keep voting for the same filthy warmongers time & time again. They are only interested in their comfort, pocketbooks & bank accounts. They have change of heart about specific war only when their own soldiers are killed in big numbers & they personally are affected negatively. Then, they support the next wars..

    @TheUSAterrorist You are so right..did you catch Rumsfield when he corrected the officer on whether they were supposed to report it not stop it? Rumsfield and the elite approved the torture and the crimes. Sick…they have broken the marale of our troops..that is the agenda I am sure and you think they are going to go easy on us? Think again.
