As an employer, you are obligated to find out whether your employees have a criminal background or not. One of the ways to do that is through a fingerprint background check. When someone is arrested for a crime, or even when they submit their fingerprints to a national database the prints are held there and they are used as a reference for the future. You have every right as an employer to use these databases to find out whether or not you are employing criminals.
In the past fingerprinting was done using cards. A person’s fingertips would be covered in ink and then the appropriate fingerprint put in the appropriate box. Although this was a good way of collecting fingerprints it was hardly effective because these were held as paper records which are extremely hard to search. In addition to that paper records are not expected to last a very long time – in about 20 years or so they are no longer in very good condition.
Technology has advanced fingerprinting. Today, the best way to do a background fingerprint check is using an electronic process called Live Scan. The subject to be printed just touches his fingertips, one at a time on a small screen and the print image is captured and stored in a database. Most governments have gone this route so doing a background check as an employer should not be a problem so long as you have access to this new fingerprinting technology.
