Alabama Education Association sues to stop background checks
April 23, 2008
After reading this article you may say to yourself; Do Alabama educators read the newspapers? I can’t believe that in todays society an employee of any organization, let alone a college, would want to work beside someone who has never had a background check run on them. I could go a million ways with this argument but instead I will be good, I’ll be civil and let you make your own determination.

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) – The Alabama Education Association is suing to stop background checks on employees of Alabama’s 2-year colleges.
A suit filed in federal court in Montgomery argues that it is a violation of federal privacy laws to require junior college employees to give their Social Security numbers to a private company to do the background checks.
