1725.321 Background Check Requirements (AFSCME)


Florida International University (FIU or the University) strives to provide a safe learning and working environment for all students, faculty, staff, volunteers, and visitors. FIU is a unique environment due to its public nature, which generally provides open for people to learn and work, housing for students, various types of research, and maintains its own police force. Backgrounds checks address concerns about providing a safe environment through minimizing negligent hiring risks (e.g., avoid hiring individuals with a proven tendency to defraud or steal from their employers, who engage in workplace violence or criminal violence, or who otherwise appear to be untrustworthy and unreliable) and/or reducing time wasted in recruiting and training the wrong candidate. Background investigations will be conducted based on the job-related requirements and consistent with business necessity.
