New legislation in Rhode Island mandating background checks in various job sectors has lead to the highest volume of pre-employment checks ever recorded at the state’s attorney general’s office.
Jobs that require the limited Rhode Island criminal history background check include those in the caregiving job sector, such as assisted-living administrators, home nursing care providers, home health care providers, nursing service agency employees and those in adult supportive care.
For these jobs, the Bureau of Criminal Identification will search in-state criminal history information and may also connect with the National Crime Information Center.d. It’s generally considered best practice for employers to run a background check on all counties of residence over the last seven years for any individual.
Caregiverlist utilizes Intellicorp’s background check screening service, recently named to Workforce Management’s 2013 Hot List of Employment Screening Providers.
