State Laws and Their Impact on Use of Criminal Records for Employment Purposes
While the FCRA and EEOC provide a legal framework under which consumer reporting agencies and employers report and use criminal records, there are a number of state laws that limit the use of arrest and conviction records by prospective employers. These range from laws and rules prohibiting the employer from asking
the applicant any questions about arrest records, to those restricting the employers use
of conviction data in making an employment decisions.
In some states, while there is little or no restrictions placed on the employer, there are protections provided to the applicant with regard to what information they are required to report or use information regarding convictions.
A current Alaska county criminal records background check is recommended for the most up to date and complete employment screening background check information.

Alaska employment screening law: Giving Employment References
If reference is presented in good faith, the employer is not liable for the disclosure regarding job references, provided they are not reckless, malicious, false or deliberately misleading. (Alaska Stat §09.65.160)
Alaska employment screening: At Will employment Law
Alaska is an employment-at-will state but an employer still must act in good faith and fair dealing. This means that an employer made no misrepresentations, that the employment relationship is entered into in good faith and that the employer will treat the employee fairly.
Please note that Federal employment screening law mandates background checks for employees who are engaged in particular industries. The Office of Inspector General of the Department of Health and Human Services maintains a list of individuals who are excluded from participation in any of its federally-funded healthcare programs. Exclusions are due to convictions for program-related fraud and patient abuse, licensing board actions and default on health education assistance loans. Therefore, employers in affected industries should check the OIG Exclusion list before hiring employees who might work in such programs. The FACIS program is also very important when screening medical personnel. Click Here for more information on FACIS.
