Keep with us to learn more about getting started with a volunteer background check today.
WHAT IS A VOLUNTEER
A volunteer background check is used for organizations to vet individuals on insights such as:
Professional qualification details, ability to work with vulnerable participants, and to determine any criminal history. In the US, volunteer background checks must be conducted in compliance with relevant local, state, and federal laws.
WHY DOES YOUR ORGANIZATION NEED ONE?
Conducting background checks ensures that your organization and its employees are kept safe when working with volunteers. Your organization needs a volunteer background check for a number of reasons:
Criminal history screenings are not sufficient:
When organizations only request criminal background information from their state or county governments, records may be incomplete and miss information on convictions committed in other jurisdictions.
Find the most trustworthy volunteers:
Not everyone who asks to volunteer is suitable or trustworthy. When you conduct a thorough background, you can protect your organization and its people from potential harm.
If you do not properly complete volunteer background checks, your organization may face repercussions in the form of being sued for a negligent hiring claim. Working with a reputable background screening provider such as Vertical Identity drastically reduces any potential liability your organization might face.
Keep up with changing laws and regulations:
Laws and regulations that govern background checks and verifications are subject to constant change. Working with an expert provider like Vertical Identity gives you peace of mind that your background screening process complies with the most up-to-date regulations and laws.
HOW OFTEN DO I NEED TO RUN VOLUNTEER
Volunteer background checks need to be run before you hire volunteers and on an annual basis following hiring. If the volunteer is required to drive, Vertical Identity offers monitoring services to alert of any changes to drivers license.
How Much Will It Cost Me?
Standard Background Checks start at $39.00. Custom pricing is available for high-volume organizations.
