Background Check Laws specific to the City of Tulsa

As a Tulsa employer, it's important to remain in compliance with the various state statutes surrounding the use of background screenings for job applicants and current employees. For example, both the city of Tulsa and the state of Oklahoma have "ban-the-box" ordinances in place that prevent employers from inquiring about past criminal history during the application process.

For state employers, an individual cannot be asked on a job application about past felony convictions. A Tulsa city ordinance further denies city employers the ability to inquire about past criminal history during the application process as well. Bear in mind, these laws do not apply to high-risk job positions, such as law enforcement and fire safety.

A unique Oklahoma statute Tulsa employers must also follow is Oklahoma Statutes §40-173.2. Under this law, Tulsa and surrounding Oklahoma state employers may not legally require employees and applicants to disclose social media information, such as log-in details. It's also against Oklahoma law to use social media as a basis for hiring decisions or as a reason for employee termination.

Background Screening Stories in the City of Tulsa

In 2014, 61-year-old Stephen Reed was arrested on sexual assault charges after it was discovered he assaulted a patient at the Tulsa memory care and assisted living facility where he worked. Records found that Reed was previously fired from a veterans' center after he admitted to neglecting several patients in his care. He had been fined $1,500 by the state nursing board and realistically, should not have been employed within a similar position.

To add insult to injury, records show the assisted living facility that employed Reed, Autumn Leaves, was previously cited by the state for failing to prove that currently employed caregivers had received state-required background screenings. According to a state inspection report, the Autumn Leaves facility received several violations in 2013 after it was discovered employers didn't complete background checks, and many employees didn't have proper licensing and/or certifications. In total, the facility failed to prove that 17 of its employees had passed required background checks by the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation.
