More on Background Check Impact of Minnesota Shutdown

Nick Fishman

As you may know by now, the Minnesota government has shutdown due to legislators inability to agree to a new state budget.  Unfortunately, those that conduct employment background checks in the state will be adversely affected.  The good news is that those who perform criminal record searches at the county level will be able to continue to do so throughout the shutdown.  However,  state level criminal background checks and Motor Vehicle Record checks cannot be performed until an accord is reached.

For those that conduct state level criminal background checks, perhaps you should consider both county level and national criminal database searches.  Unfortunately, there is no replacement for the Motor Vehicle Record check.  However if you use EmployeeScreenIQ, we will have access to MVR information through July 1, 2011.  It will not include anything that takes place after the 1st.

Stay tuned.
