Q. I’ve heard that the state of Georgia can help me make sure my employees are honest, law-abiding citizens. In conducting background checks on applicants, what sort of information is available from the Georgia Crime Information Center (GCIC)?
A. Employers can obtain arrest records, conviction records and other criminal-history information from the GCIC. Requests for such information must be accompanied by the individual’s fingerprints or by that person’s signed consent on a form prescribed by the GCIC.
Employers also can make a request electronically through an authorized state or local law enforcement agency. In that case, the GCIC may disseminate a limited amount of criminal-history record information without the fingerprints or consent, so long as the information provided by the employer sufficiently identifies the person whose records are sought. Information provided in response to electronic requests (without fingerprints or consent) is limited to in-state felony convictions, pleas and sentences.
