Recurring Criminal Checks?
I work for a company that works with the elderly population. The majority of our staff has some kind of interaction with them, whether it's visiting their home or supervising them for 8 hours at one of our facilities. We do pre-employment background checks, but are also considering instituting recurring background checks for our employees with a lot of access to our elderly clients. The purpose of this is to ensure the safety of our clients.
Does anyone currently do recurring background checks on employees? If so, would you be willing to share how you do it - for example, is it best to do checks on all employees once a year or should we randomly check a certain percentage of employees several times a year, etc. Or maybe we should re-evaluate doing this at all. I would love your input.
If we do decide to do this, we also need to figure out what we will do with the information we find - if someone has been convicted of a crime - what will we do?
Thanks in advance!
