Revision of Employment-Related Criminal Background Check Policy

Effective Date: 
Monday, December 8, 2014

Based on feedback received from the university community during the implementation of the policy, and in an effort to create a consistent and comprehensive background check process that promotes a safe campus environment, University Policy 101.23 has been revised to require criminal background checks for all non-faculty employees, including those without Sensitive Duties, at least once every five (5) years.  The revision brings UNC Charlotte in line with best practices in this area, including recommendations contained in the Freeh Report on Pennsylvania State University.
