Background Check

To provide a safe learning and working environment for our students, staff and faculty, the Human Resources Department has established procedures through which a background report will be acquired for any applicant who has been selected as the final candidate for a designated full-time or part-time position at UNCG.

The Background Check Process

As part of our onboarding initiative, we have been exploring new and efficient ways for this HR function to be simplified and more convenient, not only for the employees, but for our customers as well. Departments will have the following three options available to begin the background check process;

Important: Employees may not begin work until a successful background check has been completed

Hiring Through UNCGjobsearch

If a competitive search has been conducted using the UNCGjobsearch system and an applicant is recommended for hire, then the electronic background check process will be initiated by the Background Check Coordinator in Human Resources via email. This process will require no additional steps from the hiring department.

Hiring Outside of UNCGjobsearch

This process will be used when an employee/volunteer is hired or rehired outside of the UNCGjobsearch system and no Hiring Proposal is created and the new hire has an established email address. The Department Administrative Liaison will need to fill out this short electronic form. This form will automatically be sent to the Background Check Coordinator in Human Resources. Once this form is received, the background check process will then be initiated by the Background Check Coordinator via email.

Hiring an Employee That Does Not Have an Email Address

We understand that not everyone has an email address. This will apply to all new employees (either hired through or outside the UNCGjobsearch system) that do not have an email address. The applicant will need to come to the HR Office in person to complete the online background information.
