Pre-screening of employees during the hiring process provides employers with a snapshot of the candidate's past work, financial, and legal history. Once a job offer both offered and accepted, monitoring of this same important information stops. Actions or behaviors by employees after they come on board often go unnoticed by management and HR departments. When a change in an employee's criminal or financial history has a potential impact on their ability to perform their job, employers need to know. This is why continuous monitoring, or rolling background checks, are increasing in popularity among many of today's employers.
For the first time in history, criminal records will be sealed by automation.
In the past, if a person with a criminal record requests to seal their record from public viewing or use, they would need to hire an attorney and go through a long and often times expensive process.
Starting July 26th in the state of Pennsylvania, up to 40,000,000 criminal records will be automatically sealed without a hearing or paperwork.
