Criminal Screening of Employees

Issue Overview

The apartment industry must retain the ability to make informed decisions about current and prospective employees to help protect the safety and security of apartment residents.

As an Owner or Operator, How Does this Affect My Business?

We depend on professional employees who routinely enter apartment homes to respond to resident maintenance requests, handle confidential lease information and collect rent payments. The ability to consider the criminal history of a job applicant or employee can be one of the most important tools available to multifamily rental housing providers to help reduce the risk of violence, theft and fraud.
