Each Background Check requires action from an Administrator.
A Background Check will not show as approved on the ‘Manage Users’ page until it has been approved on the ‘In Process’ page in the ‘Background Checks’ submenu.
To view a completed Background Check, click ‘Background Checks’ in the left-hand menu, then select ‘In Process’ in the top menu.
After reviewing a completed Background Check, take action on it by clicking the ‘Gear’ symbol’ in the right-hand column.
You will see different options for an employee than you will for a volunteer.
For an employee, you will see the following options:
It is important to note the difference between 'Adverse - Offer Rescinded' and 'Adverse - Employment Denied.'
If you have already issued a job offer to the applicant but are now rescinding the offer, choose 'Adverse - Offer Rescinded.'
If you will be denying employment to the applicant but have not already issued a job offer, please choose 'Adverse - Employment Denied.'
Please note, this must occur after taking Pre-adverse action and after the 7-day waiting period.
For a volunteer, you will see the following options:
If you will be denying a volunteer opportunity for the applicant based on the findings of their Background Check, you will choose 'Adverse - Deny Applicant'.
Please note, this must occur after taking Pre-adverse action, and after the 7-day waiting period.
Once the Background Check has been accepted or rejected, it will move into the ‘View All’ page in the ‘Background Checks’ submenu.

Do NOT take action on a Background Check before it has completed processing, as this will interrupt the process and the Background Check will have to be archived and reordered.
Approve: Select this option if there is nothing in the Background Check report that precludes the User from involvement in your Organization.
Pre-Adverse: Select this option if there is information in the Background Check report that may preclude the User from involvement in your Organization. In compliance with the FCRA (federal law), a notification letter will be sent by email to the User, including a copy of the Background Check report and a copy of each individual’s rights under the law. This step MUST occur before any adverse action is taken based upon the report.
Adverse: Select this option if the Background Check report includes information that precludes the User from involvement in your Organization, and you have completed the pre-adverse process.
Archive: Select this option if a report (not completed by the applicant) is no longer needed, or the applicant did not complete the form within the 14-day active period.
