At LaborChex, we’re giving back to our communities with affordable Volunteer Screening packages (hereafter Volunteer Chex). Volunteer Chex is tailored to meet the needs of volunteer, charity, and nonprofit organizations. Now you can screen your volunteers and employees just as thoroughly as our corporate clients do.
Problems that occur in a house of worship can have harmful effects, both physically and emotionally, on the victim of misconduct and an adverse effect on the entire organization and its reputation. If an incident happens when a child, youth, or adult is in the care of a volunteer, charity, or nonprofit organization, the impact on both the victim and the organization can be emotionally, financially, and legally devastating.
The volunteer, charity, or nonprofit organization is liable for what happens in and on its premises and may be the target of law suits. By implementing Volunteer Chex, an organization can significantly decrease the likelihood that misconduct will occur and demonstrate that the organization has acted with reasonable care to select appropriate staff and volunteer workers.
REASONS FOR A VOLUNTEER SCREENING PROGRAM
A screening procedure is designed to provide a safe and secure environment for organizations. Establishing a screening procedure for volunteers is a small price to pay to protect organizations from employees and volunteers who exhibit inappropriate or illegal behavior. Performing screening and reference checks may very well deter high-risk individuals from applying for positions in a volunteer, charity, or nonprofit capacity by identifying those applicants with a history of inappropriate conduct.
Volunteer screening via Volunteer Chex is an extremely important administrative process and requires continued accountability and dialogue by a number of volunteer, charity, and nonprofit organizations’ leadership. It should be a continuing process from year to year.
