Update: Alabama Teacher Background Checks to Proceed
April 24, 2008
I would like to think it was the power of the employeescreen blog, but it wasn’t. If you read yesterdays article, Alabama Education Association sues to stop background checks, you will not be surprised to learn that the background checks will proceed.
MONTGOMERY | The Department of Postsecondary Education will start criminal background checks of its 10,000 employees next month under an agreement worked out with the Alabama Education Association in federal court on Wednesday.
The AEA sued Postsecondary Chancellor Bradley Byrne after he announced plans to conduct the background checks.
The suit was resolved when U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson approved a new background check consent form. The original form would have required employees to release their Social Security numbers to a private company, while the new one makes it optional.
