Background Check Laws Specific to the City of Arlington

Unlike numerous states across the country, neither the state of Texas nor the city of Arlington have "ban-the-box" laws in place. This means that for both private and public job applications, employers are currently able to inquire about criminal history on the actual application itself. Many "ban-the-box" laws across the country prohibit this and typically only allow a background check to be completed once an applicant is found qualified for the position.

While the state of Texas does not have "ban-the-box" laws, they do have specific regulations limiting the time frame a background screening can investigate. Under current Texas law, an Arlington employer may only assess seven years prior to the background screening request. Bear in mind, if the potential salary for the job position exceeds $75,000 a year, these regulations are not applicable. Instead, an Arlington employer can request a background screening from the applicant that covers criminal history from the age of 18 and above.

Background Screening Stories in the City of Arlington

Back in 2012, the Arlington Independent School District adopted new technology to increase student safety at school locations across the city. The V-Soft computer program is an advanced visitor management system that scans the IDs of visitors and quickly submits their information to a nationwide database. This rapid form of a background check quickly assesses an individual attempting to enter the school and reviews their criminal record for previous incidents that could be a red flag.

Such details can include the history of criminal offenses involving children or notification that the individual is registered with the national sex offender registry. In the event the system identifies a potential concern, school administrators are quickly notified via text message or email. Likewise, routine updates to the system allow for notifications acknowledging previous visitors have later developed a criminal record.
