Sex offender registries and schools
I work for a construction company in Maryland and we have a lot of state/federal contracts. Something i am seeing more and more of is contracts requiring that anyone we put on the job site on or near school grounds requires us to clear all the employees from the applicable sex offender registries. Does anyone have an experience with this? I know there are privacy concerns galore, but I am getting more concerned with negligent hiring issues. Has anyone heard of any company being held liable for hiring a sex offender (outside the 'usual' positions that require direct contact with children).
