Update your Records or be Fined by the State

**Failure to screen and re-screen employees including contract staff is a violation of state law and subject to a fine of $500 per person.**

All employees are required by law to be screened and re-screened every 5 through your governing agency. Because of the livescan screening law change to level 2 back in August of 2010, there was a phase in period. The phase in period ended in July 2015!

AHCA and other government agencies are on a hunt to audit employers with out of date records. Usually the holiday time is a little slower and you don't want to be like a few of our customers who have called us too late and have had to pay steep fees to get their employees in compliance. Remember, when you hire or rehire employees that used to work for you, make sure to re-screen them if there was a lapse in employment greater than 90 days. 

If you should have any questions or want to know what the state is looking for please use us as resource!!


Description of Searches

Social Security Number Search (SSN) When hiring an employee or screening a volunteer, an important step is to begin to verify the individual's identity by conducting a Social Security Number (SSN) Search. This search provides information on an applicant’s name, past addresses and movement patterns based on the SSN provided to us (NOTE: information from the Social Security Administration is not used in this report). In addition to returning information on a SSN, this search provides a report with the following: Full name and/or alternate names used by an applicant, dates at listed addresses, age/date of birth, and available phone information. This is an investigative starting point that provides a more complete background search when combined with additional screening services. Turnaround Time: Instant

Social Media Screening

Therefore, job candidates are protected from discrimination based on these characteristics and, in turn, employers are protected from allegations of discrimination. The Executive report is a detailed report that contains all information that is found online on the candidate. This report accounts for non-user generated content such as media hits in addition to the already included pre-defined employer criteria. With the report employers receive a 360-degree view of their candidate’s online profile. Turnaround Time: 1-3 days.

E-Verify and Form I-9 Management
Incomplete records and lack of compliance can cost your company hefty fines and penalties. Automated processing reduces your risk.

The system is designed to notify employers if there is some discrepancy or issue that might cause the employer to hire an illegal immigrant. The Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) require employers to hire only persons who may legally work in the U.S. The employer must verify the identity and employment eligibility of anyone to be hired, which includes completing the Form I-9.
