Background Check Laws Specific to the City of Mesa

There are state-specific background check laws that Mesa employers must follow when completing background checks on applicants and employees. In November 2017, Arizona Governor Douglas Ducey signed an executive order establishing “ban-the-box” laws for employers. Under this new law, state agency job applications are no longer able to inquire about a past criminal record. An employer may only inquire about an applicant’s criminal history after an application has been submitted and an initial interview has been completed.

Furthermore, the state of Arizona upholds strict background check regulations for job applicants in the childcare industry. State Bill 1504 mandates that any applicant applying to a home childcare provider, group home, childcare center, or childcare resource agency position must undergo a background check prior to employment. The applicant will be required to submit fingerprints and agree to an Arizona Child Abuse and Neglect Registry search. If the applicant is hired, a background check is then required every five years after the hiring date.
