Are you a religious organization looking to ensure a safe environment for children and families? LaborChex can help!
LaborChex is committed to helping faith-based organizations maintain a safe environment so they can focus on fulfilling their mission. Background checks for churches, synagogues, mosques, missions, and faith-based service organizations and auxiliary services are a must to ensure the safety of parishioners and other community members – especially if volunteers will be doing direct outreach.
LaborChex’s software makes it simple to obtain and manage secure church background checks. LaborChex has automated the submission process and stores the results on each organization’s profile, providing secure and easy access. We understand the complexity and sensitivity of your mission and your work and we’ve designed our screening services to be completely private and compliant with all state and federal privacy regulations.
Volunteers & Daycare Workers:
Citizen volunteers make up the backbone of many faith-driven organizations and their service programs. If you are to check the background of anyone, it should be volunteers and daycare workers. They are often responsible for the most precious item in your church: a child. These persons should have clear criminal records and valid driving records, since there will be times when they might drive church or personal vehicles with children aboard. This is why we offer our special Volunteer Chex screening option, a reliable, cost-efficient screening solution for volunteers.
This category includes teachers, secretaries, accounts receivable/payable workers, etc. In addition to knowing intimate personal details about members of the congregation (such as addresses and social security/checking account numbers), these workers are often entrusted with the handling of church funds including credit cards, investment accounts, and more. In addition to checking criminal records and driving records, when appropriate, previous employment and education should be verified. Employment credit reports should be obtained for applicants who will handle money or funds.
From janitors and kitchen workers to bus drivers and maintenance personnel, this category of workers requires careful screening. In addition to working with church property, these workers also have direct contact with children, and even know when a parishioner’s car is unattended. Criminal records and driving records should be checked, and a drug screening might be a good idea as well.
