CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECK DISCLOSURE STATEMENT
In conjunction with your volunteer application with Stronger than My Father or any of its affiliates (the “Organization”) may obtain a “criminal background report” and/or an “investigative criminal background report” about you for record keeping, volunteering and safety purposes. The information contained in such criminal background reports may be used by the Organization for volunteer selection and approval purposes. If you are hired/selected as a volunteer by the Organization, the information in a criminal background report and/or investigative criminal background report may be used for other employment/volunteer purposes, such as promotion, retention, and termination.
A “criminal background report” may contain the following types of information about you: criminal history including felony filings, misdemeanor filings, and motor vehicle records, etc. An “investigative criminal background report” is broader and seeks information that bears on your character, general reputation, personal characteristics, or mode of living that is compiled through the use of personal interviews with references, employers, neighbors, friends, associates, etc. in order to be used for volunteer purposes. You have a right to request disclosure of the nature and scope of the reports.
If the Organization obtains a criminal background report or an investigative criminal background report about you, and if the Organization considers any information when making an employment decision that directly and adversely affects you, you will be provided with a copy of the applicable reports before the decision is finalized.
