Question by Satisfaction : How can I check my record? When I say “record”, I mean like legal history… I haven’t been in trouble at all, arrested or anything like that but I’m applying for a new job and I’d like to see what they’re seeing. There’s a form I have to sign that authorizes a background check, but I don’t know if whatever information is out there is totally valid, like my address and stuff. I want everything to be clear and okay before I sign anything. Best answer:

1. If you haven’t been convicted of a crime, then you have nothing to worry about.
2. If they find that you have been convicted of a crime, and they don’t hire you because of that, then they have to inform you of what they find.
3. I run an employment agency. We do criminal background checks. We type in name, social security and date of birth. The computer tries to find people who match on all three fields, but it will sometimes show people who match only on name. Then we ignore the ones who have the wrong birth dates. The criminal background check does not tell us your address. It only tell us about criminal convictions and prison time served and changes in parole status.
