After Drug-Free Workplace regulations were enacted in the U.S., employers began drug testing to enforce safe workplaces and behaviors. Drug testing methods and background checks are now becoming more comprehensive and offering instant results, which makes identifying criminal activity more efficient.
Today, employers are utilizing an even more in-depth form of background check, which screens certain employees not only for criminal activity, but also drug use. These Level 2 background checks are used primarily for employees who work with minors, the elderly and the disabled. Some examples are teachers, home-care providers, day-care providers, law enforcement officials and employees working under certain professional licenses, such as real estate brokers.
One of the major advantages of Level 2 background checks, is that they allow employers to scrupulously investigate an employee’s criminal history – more so than any other form of background check. In addition to revealing an employee’s state and national criminal history (including expunged crimes), Level 2 background checks upturn motor vehicle records and name aliases. They also extract information from local, state, national and federal databases, including a sex offender database, producing the most thorough and comprehensive employee screenings.
X-celerated Screenings uses the FBI and Florida Department of Law Enforcement-approved Livescan fingerprinting service to conduct Level 2 background checks. Customized service bundles for volunteers and pre-employment screenings are available, as well as discounted bundles with drug and alcohol testing services to make it more affordable and efficient to screen your employees.
