Oklahoma Background Check Laws

Get a Background Check

What Information Does a Background Check Include?

A background check may include the following: confirmation that the Social Security number you provided matches your name, confirmation of your most recent home addresses, a multi-state criminal history check, a credit check and a driving record check. Usually companies hiring senior caregivers only conduct a social security name match and a multi-state criminal background check. Credit checks and driving record checks are only conducted if the employee will be handling money and driving.

How many years back will a Background Check go?

The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) which governs background checks nationally only allows for a review of the past 7 years. However, individual states may pass laws which require more disclosures. Many states do have different background check requirements when employees will be working with children or seniors. This is why you need to review your individual state law to know what will be included in your background check.

Can I purchase my own Background Check?

Yes, Caregiverlist offers you the ability to purchase your own background check from the leading provider in the industry.
