Federal law requires that an individual give his or her signed consent to perform a background check. You can obtain this electronically and create customized forms for your organization.
When requesting a background check inside Verified First, you can send individuals an electronic form to verify information and consent. This protects applicants by allowing them to enter their personally identifiable information at their convenience.
Here are some sample consent forms that you can customize to suit the needs of your organization. For example, you can tailor a form to ask potential volunteers which area they want to volunteer in, include fields for contact information, and add your organization's logo to the form.
If you create customized forms, you may want to reach out to your legal team to ensure they are still compliant to use.
