Changes to Ohio BCI/FBI Fingerprint Procedure

Changes to Ohio BCI/FBI Fingerprint Procedure

The Ohio Attorney General’s office has recently notified all background screening and fingerprint providers of a change in processing FBI background checks. The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) has made this change, which is effective immediately and affects customers utilizing web-based fingerprinting services.

What You Need to Know:
If an FBI background check is submitted for licensing/employment approved by the FBI and the outcome contains a criminal history record, BCI will release the criminal history record directly to you (the employer) ONLY. BCI will no longer utilize the “May Not Meet Conditions of Employment” letter. The BCI portion of the background check results can still be received by the web portal, but the FBI results will only be mailed to the intended party.

THIS IS FOR ALL FBI BACKGROUND CHECKS, EVEN THOSE WITHOUT A CRIMINAL RECORD.

With this change, the BCI has eliminated third-party access to this information. Results will no longer be in our report, but will instead be mailed directly to you. This will undoubtedly cause delays and unintended confusion to this process, as the results will come separately via U.S. mail without any context to the overall background screening report.

Corporate Screening and our fingerprinting partner is committed to creating a better solution in the future. However, the BCI is requiring us to act immediately to remain compliant.  This is an unexpected and immediate system/statewide change and impacts all background screening/fingerprint vendors.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Please contact Corporate Screening customer support  (800-229-8606, option 4) or your account manager with questions or concerns related this matter.

Every day, healthcare professionals make critical decisions about personnel. On one level, these decisions impact patient care and access. On another, they can make or break your organization’s reputation or worse, impact vital industry accreditation and certification. Plus, there’s also increasing federal and state legislation requiring background screening.

With all this to consider, these details are more important than ever. That’s why proper healthcare background screenings are critical.

Alert: CFPB Publishes Updated Summary of Rights Under the FCRA

Alert: CFPB Publishes Updated Summary of Rights Under the FCRA

Earlier this year, Congress passed the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act (S. 2155).  The legislation provides new consumer rights to a national credit freeze.

As a result, on September 12, 2018, The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) published an updated Summary of Rights Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) that incorporates this right into the notice.

 

The updated form is now available in the Resources section of EASE.  

 

This may also be a good time to review other documents associated with your background screening program, including disclosure and authorization forms, Adverse Action forms and processes, state specific notices, etc.  You can always find the latest versions of these import forms and notices in our Resource Center, accessible from the EASE dashboard.  Corporate Screening customers should have received a direct link to this resource center via e-mail.

Update/Replace the Notice
Any copies of this notice used at your organization should be replaced with the updated notice.  This includes notices that appear electronically in your Application Tracking System.

Effective Date – September 21, 2018
The effective date of this change is September 21, 2018. Please assess how to make this update within your organization as soon as possible.

Corporate Screening is Here to Help
If you have any questions or need any assistance related to this change, please contact your account representative and we will be happy to assist you.

Legislative Update: Michigan Bans the Box

Legislative Update: Michigan Bans the Box

On September 7, Michigan Governor Rick Snyder signed an executive order bringing the “ban the box” law to state departments and agencies in his state. The law prohibits state departments and agencies from asking potential candidates about criminal history on job applications. Snyder also directed the state Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs to remove criminal history questions from applications for state-issued licenses that don’t require such inquiries under state law. These orders go into effect on October 1, 2018.

According to Crain’s Detroit Business, Snyder urged private employers to ban the box, but stopped short of urging Michigan state legislature to make it law. Democrat-sponsored “ban the box” legislation has fallen short recent years, but Snyder and others see it as a way to increase applications for jobs in the state and potentially lead to legislative action.

“When you talk about electricians or plumbers, we all know we can use more people in those fields,” Snyder tells The Detroit News, “and if we can broaden the pipeline of people able to do that work, I think it’s a good thing for all of us.”
