University of Minnesota and College of Liberal Arts Background Verification

Background Verification; attachments include the University of Minnesota policy, which includes procedures and appendices, a policy summary fact sheet, a listing of positions for which CLA has determined will require background verifications, and internal CLA processes and procedures.

The University of Minnesota "Pre-Hire Background Verification" policy in conjunction with federal law, governs types of positions which require pre-hire background verifications.

Pre-hire background verifications are required for newly hired, transferred, promoted, reclassified, or reassigned positions, even those of an interim, temporary, or casual nature in the following categories:

  • Senior Administrative Positions
  • Positions with any fiscal management responsibilities
  • Positions where federal or state regulations require criminal checks

In addition to those required by law, the University advises that pre-background verifications be conducted for many other positions.

CLA has determined which positions in addition to those required by law and policy, will require verifications be performed (see attached)*. In most cases, CLA will conduct the "Standard" verification package which includes Social Security Number Trace, Criminal Felony & Misdemeanors, Sexual Offender Search, and Federal Criminal. CLA reserves the right to conduct further verifications as position responsibilities dictate.

The attached information provides the University of Minnesota policy, which includes procedures and appendices, a policy summary fact sheet, a listing of positions for which CLA has determined will require background verifications, and internal CLA processes and procedures.

Questions regarding Background Verifications should be directed to CLA Human Resources, Tihara Chadwick (624-0098) or Millie Reid (626-7648).

*Decisions made at 12.21.10 Dean's Group meeting
