Employers House Accounts
For companies and organizations that require Live Scan for new hires and/or volunteers on an on-going basis we will be happy to set up an AMERITEK ID employer Client Account. This option is available at both our Los Angeles/Encino and Orange County/Westminster Service Centers.
Client Accounts not only receive convenient as-needed employee processing but valuable transmission reports, record management assistance and DOJ and FBI record response trouble shooting.
Let AMERITEK ID be your Human Resources Live Scan compliance partner. Contact client services in Los Angeles – (888) 417-0203 for details.
Determine if your agency is authorized to submit applicant fingerprints for background checks
Before any of your potential applicants can be fingerprinted for a background check, you must apply with the DOJ to become an authorized applicant agency unless already designated by law. Please note: The DOJ will only approve an organization if authorized in statute. The authorizing statute will specify the level of service you are authorized to receive (i.e., California criminal history information ONLY or California and Federal criminal history information).
Submit the appropriate authorization request forms
The following are specific authorization request forms for various applicant agencies including, but not limited to, youth organizations, human resources agencies, contract employers and in-home supportive care providers.
A. Authorization request packet utilized by all applicant agencies unless designated below.
B. School Contract Employers ONLY authorization request packet.
C. In-Home Supportive Care Providers ONLY authorization request packet.
D. Youth Organization and Human Resources ONLY authorization request packet.
Determine if your agency is required or wants to receive Subsequent Arrest Notifications on applicants once they are employed or licensed
Applicant Agencies may apply to receive subsequent arrest notification information for individuals for whom criminal background checks were requested. Subsequent arrest services must be requested in writing and are not retroactive for individuals printed prior to receipt of the subsequent notification agreement.
Wait for the authorization to be approved
This process can take six weeks to complete, sometimes longer if FBI approvals are required. You will be notified in writing when you can begin sending applicants to be fingerprinted.
