Background Check Laws Specific to the City of Indianapolis
In addition to federal background screening laws, Indianapolis employers also have state-specific regulations that must be followed during the hiring process. In 2017, Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb signed an executive order establishing the Fair Chance Hiring Process within the state. Under this law, state position employers may no longer ask applicants if they have previously been arrested or convicted of a crime.
Outside of employer practices, there are also regulations placed on the background check providers in the state of Indiana. Under Indiana state code IC § 24-4-18-7, background check providers are prohibited from reporting criminal history on an employer-requested background check that has not been updated in the previous 60 days. Likewise, the background screening provider may not disclose any information regarding expunged records or information about Class D felonies that were convicted as misdemeanors.
Background Screening Stories Relating to the City of Indianapolis
In 2014, Indianapolis City-County Council passed a “ban-the-box” law that created new background check restrictions for city employers. Under the ordinance, position applications for city jobs and city vendors were not allowed to include questions about past criminal convictions. However, in 2017, the state of Indiana became the first state to ban “ban-the-box” regulations. With this new regulation, previous “ban-the-box” regulations passed in Indianapolis were voided.
Under new statewide regulation, a local government like Indianapolis may not prohibit an employer from obtaining and using background criminal history information during the hiring process. This new regulation comes with Governor Holcomb’s strong disapproval of restricting hiring and background check processes for private employers. Although Governor Holcomb went on to establish the Fair Chance Hiring Process in 2017, these regulations preventing the request of past criminal history during the application process only pertains to state positions.
