Background Checks

Before your new employee begins their first day of work, you need to conduct a background check. In order to do this:

  • Print and use this Background Check Authorization form to request a background check in accordance with the Diocese’s Creating a Healthy Environment policy.
  • Keep a copy in the appropriate confidential on-site file and send one to the Office of the Bishop. It can be mailed to:

Jennifer Elliott, 4800 Woodward Ave., Detroit, MI 48201

Or, faxed to Jennifer Elliott at 313-831-0259

There is a Background Screening Cost & Responsibility explanation sheet included in the Background Check Authorization form, that offers a detailed explanation about types of screening and costs.
     The fee for First Advantage to do the background screening is $23-$30.
     The fee for Oxford Document Management Company, Inc. to do the background screening is $120.
These fees will be invoiced to congregations and agencies.
