FBI Criminal History Checks for Employment (and Licensing) is codified for non-criminal justice purposes in Public Law (Pub. L.) 92-544. Pursuant to this law, the FBI is empowered to exchange criminal history record information with officials of state and local governments for employment, or licensing, which includes volunteers, and other similar non-criminal justice purposes, if authorized by and under a given state statute. Consequently, the Department of Justice has advised that “the state statute establishing guidelines for a category of employment, or the issuance of a license must, in itself, require fingerprinting and authorize the governmental licensing or employing agency, to exchange fingerprint data directly with the FBI”. Therefore, legal certainty exists to employ and utilize this vital screening task.
