Although volunteers are not considered “employees” under the Fair Credit Reporting Act, we feel it is best practice to screen volunteers as you would regular employees. If, however, an agency is unable to screen volunteers at the same level that can be afforded to employees, we offer the VolunteerSCREEN.

This search combines a national criminal history database check with a national sex offender registry check to identify potentially violent criminals and sex offenders before they come into contact with at-risk populations.

Please note that this is not a true ‘nationwide’ or comprehensive national search, rather it is considered multi-jurisdictional. It is completely dependent on participation from the originating source. Originating sources may include: county court records, state repository records, or state correctional records. If we see a “hit” on the national report, we will automatically proceed with the county level check to verify the information is correct.
