Las Vegas, NV – Background Check

Background Check Laws Specific to the City of Las Vegas, NV

In Las Vegas, NV, employers may run background checks on applicants and use past criminal histories in making hiring decisions. But there are some restrictions.

When obtaining criminal background information, the Fair Credit Reporting Act requires some employers to obtain written consent. In addition, the state of Nevada has a ban-the-box law to prohibit government employers from asking about criminal histories on the initial application.

Las Vegas business owners and hiring managers must also abide by Nevada’s anti-discrimination laws, which prohibit employers from discriminating based on an applicant’s color and race. With African Americans and Latinos having higher arrests rates in Las Vegas, an employer may discriminate unknowingly if passing on applicants based on criminal history.

Although background checks in Las Vegas used to be limited to going back seven years, Las Vegas no longer requires this limit, and criminal convictions from more than seven years prior may appear.
