CLA HR would like to extend a tremendous thank you for reading through the new Background Check request process and FAQ document which was disseminated on August 19th. The Background Request Form and FAQ document can be accessed on our intranet at: http://cla.umn.edu/intranet/hr/
We would also like to provide you with the following information regarding the general rationale for the implementation and timing of this new University of Minnesota policy. OHR has let us know that the University is responding to the events from last year with the Penn State case. Also, OHR wanted to make sure the University was in compliance right after the policy was approved. Since this is also the peak period of hiring, OHR wanted to ensure the University was conducting background checks on new hires coming in this fall for the safety and security of students, staff, faculty and visitors.
