Background Check Alert for New York Employers

Nick Fishman

We wanted to remind all employers in the state of New York that as of February 5, 2009 you must comply with the New York State Correction Law Article 23-A, Section 753“Licensure and Employment of Persons Previously Convicted of One or More Criminal Offenses”.

Generally, this law requires employers to post a copy of Article 23-A in place of business in a conspicuous area. They must present a copy of this document to the subject of a background check when consent to conduct a background check is requested. Furthermore, the document must be given to the subject of a background check once again in the event that a criminal conviction is revealed on the background check.
