Kansas employment law also provides the following protection to employment applicants:
Kansas law provides that for an employer to refuse to hire an applicant, his or her criminal history must reasonably bear on his or her trustworthiness or the safety or well being of the employer’s employees or customers.
The statute applies to both public and private employers.In addition, the statute limits liability for employers regarding the employment decision, as long as the applicable standard is followed.
No CRA may report records of arrest, indictment, or conviction of crime, which from date of disposition, release, or parole, antedate the report by more than seven years.
Exception: If salary will be equal to $20,000 or more, the 7-year restriction does not apply.
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®.
