Schedule for fingerprinting employees hired prior to September 2013
By now, all employees hired since September 2013 should either have a completed SAFIS background check or have a check in process. We’ve been holding off on starting the checks for pre-September 2013 employees to allow the backlog at many of the enrollment centers to clear. But we are ready to start. To avoid overloading the enrollment centers, pre-September 2013 employees will be checked according to a staggered schedule based on the first letter of the employee’s last name:
A-D October 2014 through March 2015
E-K April 2015 through August 2015
L-P August 2015 through December 2015
Q-Z January 2016 through May 2016
MorphoTrust, our fingerprinting vendor, continues to add locations and hours. Consult the MorphoTrust registration website for the latest information.
The mobile van option has been temporarily discontinued in order to focus resources on the enrollment centers. We will let you know if this option is reinstated in the future.
