A proactive compliment to standard background checks, the Continuous Criminal Monitoring program is an FCRA-compliant service that provides near real-time alerts on U.S. arrest, booking or incarceration activity that occurs within your service network or the workforce after the initial background check.
Criminal issues that occur between the standard two-year rescreen cycles can often go undetected and the ongoing monitoring allows organizations to see alerts on criminal activity that may occur in their network, including DUI, assaults, theft, and more, which may increase the company’s risk and liability.
Continuous monitoring is the ongoing process of reviewing records on an individual that may flag internal threats and safety concerns. It is a helpful tool in a comprehensive workforce risk management strategy and will be best supported when used with a self-reporting policy, which encourages individuals to come forward with any relevant information that may impact contract program participation.
Using the individual’s name, and date of birth, this service will provide access to near-real time i data from US county jails and Department of Corrections facilities. The continuous monitoring will typically provide notice to PlusOne within 24 hours of an incarceration or booking event. Incarceration and booking alerts provide a proactive tool and more timely information over a wider geographic area than a local level county record check.
Based on agreement with the customer, PlusOne may provide notification may be provided at the alert, verification, or adjudication (sentencing) stage of the identified event. A risk relevancy matrix must be on file if PlusOne will be responsible for verification or review/action of results. All records should be reviewed in line with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) Guidance which uses the nature and gravity of the offense and nature of the job they will be doing to determine if the issue will impact the individual’s eligibility.
This service is only available on active contractor individuals in the PlusOne system and is not attached to any other service offering or screening package conducted by PlusOne. We may also include employees in the program, if desired. A valid disclosure and authorization must be on file for any individual in the monitoring program. Monitoring results are effective from the date the individual is entered in the monitoring program forward. Results are not historical.
