Background Check Laws Specific to the City of Aurora

The state of Colorado requires Aurora employers to follow specific laws and regulations when incorporating the use of background checks into their hiring processes. Along with many states across the country, Colorado adopted "ban-the-box" laws in 2019, which banned private and public employers with 11 or more employees from requesting information regarding an applicant's criminal history during the application process. For positions that prohibit employing an individual with specific criminal history, such as local law enforcement, these laws do not apply.

Furthermore, Aurora employers are also required to follow specific laws in regards to the use of social media for employment purposes. Under the Colorado Social Media and Workplace Law, an employer cannot request or require that an employee or applicant disclose personal social media information for purposes of employment. Likewise, Colorado Senate Bill 19-085 also prohibits an employer from using an applicant's previous salary history for means of employment or potential salary offerings in the event the individual is hired.

Employment Experts in the City of Aurora Say…

As an Aurora employer, it's important to remain mindful of the extensive Colorado laws that allow records of specific criminal history to be sealed and unavailable for public view. The state of Colorado recently passed these laws to protect the potential employment opportunities of individuals with a criminal history as a minor. According to Aurora Criminal Expungement Attorney Philip M. Smith, there are many types of previous conviction records that can be sealed in the state of Colorado.

Types of sealed convictions can include petty drug offenses and any class 2 or 3 misdemeanor two years or older. Bear in mind, these laws only pertain to specific crimes and those with records of certain crimes, like sex offenses and domestic violence offenses, may not be entitled to expungement. In the event an applicant or employee has legally had criminal records expunged, they will not appear on a criminal background check and cannot be used for purposes of employment.
