犯罪背景调查的有效期是多久?

宾夕法尼亚州的雇主有两个关于时间背景调查的问题需要考虑。首先,宾夕法尼亚州的犯罪背景调查进行了多少年 ?其次,PA 犯罪背景调查的有效期是多久?

各州制定了不同的法律来规定 犯罪背景调查可以追溯到多远。“犯罪背景调查进行了多少年?”的答案 因您所在的位置而异。在某些州,雇主不得考虑超过七年的重罪或轻罪。宾夕法尼亚州不是这些州之一:宾夕法尼亚州目前没有任何法律或法规规定对犯罪历史检查的回顾期限制。因此,宾夕法尼亚州的雇主在技术上可以考虑重罪或轻罪,无论定罪年龄有多大。

但是,宾夕法尼亚州的法律确实规定,雇主只能在“与申请人在其[或她]申请的职位上的就业适宜性相关的程度内”考虑定罪。换句话说,雇主必须确定定罪与空缺职位的相关性。没有重复定罪的较旧定罪,根据它发生的时间,可能 与手头的位置没有 合理的相关性。雇主还应考虑定罪的性质和严重程度,以及它是否与工作职责直接相关。

关于犯罪背景调查的有效期限,雇主应警惕制定重新检查现有员工的政策。无论多么彻底,犯罪背景调查都可能在报告返回的同一天过期。

报告是个人在特定时刻的犯罪历史的快照。如果您今天对求职者进行背景调查,而他或她明天因涉嫌谋杀被捕,那么如果不重新检查,您将一无所知。 重复进行背景调查——无论是每年、两年还是五年——可以让您的企业及时了解员工犯罪记录是否发生变化。

如需简单的解决方案,请使用 我们 在 GOOHO.CN 上持续进行的犯罪监控服务。这项服务 每个月都会通过我们的美国 OneSEARCH 数据库运行您员工的姓名 。如果自上个月以来您的员工记录有任何新进展——无论是手令、待决指控、新的轻罪或重罪定罪,还是加入州性犯罪者登记处——我们都会立即通知您。 如果您愿意,我们也很高兴对 您的任何员工进行新的宾夕法尼亚州背景调查。如果您对这些犯罪背景调查服务有任何疑问,请立即联系我们。

in Pennsylvania? Second, how long is a PA criminal background check good for?

States have different laws in place that dictate how far back criminal background checks can go. The answer to “How many years back does a criminal background check go?” varies depending on where you are. In some states, employers are not allowed to consider felonies or misdemeanors that are more than seven years old. Pennsylvania is not one of these states: PA currently has no laws or regulations in place that stipulate a lookback period restriction for criminal history checks. As such, Pennsylvania employers can technically consider felonies or misdemeanors no matter how old the convictions are.

However, Pennsylvania law does stipulate that employers can only consider convictions “to the extent to which they relate to the applicant's suitability for employment in the position for which he [or she] has applied.” In other words, employers must determine how relevant a conviction is to an open position. An older conviction with no repeat convictions since may not be justifiably relevant to the position at hand based on how long ago it occurred. Employers should also consider the nature and severity of the conviction and whether it relates directly to the responsibilities of the job.

Regarding how long a criminal background check is good for, employers should be vigilant about establishing a policy for re-checking existing employees. No matter how thorough it is, a criminal background check could fall out of date on the same day the report comes back.

A report is a snapshot of an individual’s criminal history at a specific moment. If you run a background check on a job candidate today and he or she is arrested on suspicion of murder tomorrow, you would know nothing about that occurrence without re-checking in place. Running repeat background checks—whether every year, two years, or five years—allows your business to keep up to date on whether employee criminal records have changed.

For an easy solution, use our ongoing criminal monitoring service at backgroundchecks.com. This service runs your employees’ names through our US OneSEARCH database every month. If there are any new developments to your employee’s record since last month—be it a warrant, a pending charge, a new misdemeanor or felony conviction, or joining the state sex offender registry—we will notify you immediately. We’re also happy to run a new Pennsylvania state background check on any one of your employees if you wish to do so. If you have any questions about either of these criminal background check services, contact us today.
