Background Checks

A bill ( H.R. 1331) introduced by Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-MO) would allow employers in the security and alarm monitoring business access to federal databases to conduct background checks on employees. Because state background screening requirements vary, employers would be able to conduct a federal criminal background check to ensure that employees have not been convicted of a felony within the previous 10 years. After completing a successful check, the employee would be given a federal ID card good for one year that could be used in any state. Under the bill, an employee would be allowed to dispute the findings and correct false information.
