Hiring for a new position requires a criminal background check, especially when that job deals with children or the public. An essential part of any pre-employment screening is performing sex offender background checks. Those who are convicted of sexual crimes are typically registered on state and the National Sex Offender registry.

Many companies can perform this screening process for you, but not all of them offer specific sex offender background checks. At ScoutLogic, we have an efficient and attentive screening process. We can verify whether potential hirees are a danger by scanning through the national sex offender registry.

Why You Need to Perform a Sex Offender Background Check

According to the US Department of Justice, there are over 500,000 registered sex offenders across all 50 states. Statistics also suggest that people with a sex crime conviction are more likely to be repeat offenders. That said, many background checks eliminate this type of information. At ScoutLogic, sex offender registry checks are always included, but many providers do not provide this search automatically. You want to be sure your current background check scope includes sex offender registry data.

With these statistics in mind, it’s clear why screening for these convicted criminals is necessary. It’s even more essential if your business involves working with children and minors. In these cases, you want to be as confident as possible that the person you hire does not have any sexual crimes on their record.

A background screening that investigates whether the applicant is on any sex offender registries is an obligation to your patrons and customers, particularly vulnerable populations. You also need to protect your business from liability.

Verifying that the person you bring on board has no criminal record is necessary, especially with predatory crimes. You must be aware of any potential employee’s criminal history.
