What is the National Background Check?
PNBC stands for Pre-Employment National Background Check. This is required by all initial hires at the University of Kentucky.
Actual components of the background check process will be determined by job type.
The background check packages break down as follows:
1. Social Security number trace - Results will include name, all known aliases, and all addresses associated with the social security number as listed on the credit report.
2. Criminal felony and misdemeanor history - A search of municipal & superior courts within identified/specified counties. The date for criminal records is based on the date of last court control.
As a best practice, our vendor has opted to omit the following dispositions when reporting criminal records: acquitted, not guilty, expunged and juvenile cases (if sentence is completed prior to applicant turning 18 years of age).
3. National Sex Offender Registry - Performed in the current residence of the candidate, this check will return name, aliases, address, date of birth, height/weight/description, convictions, sentences, and other pertinent information.
4. Health care sanction and prohibited parties - Identifies sanctioned individuals and entities in the healthcare field. Reprimands, probations, suspensions/revocations of provider licenses, cease-and-desist orders, exclusions for failure to pay students loans, DEA violations, professional misconduct charges and disciplinary actions by federal agencies as well as certification and licensing agencies in all 50 states.
A la carte checks may be requested on items such as employment verification, education verification, professional credentials and professional licensure.
