Background Check Response
The results of background checks are sent to the agency (the agency who requested the criminal background check,) except where statutorily mandated. There are very few instances where statute mandates a second copy of the response be sent to another agency when certain conditions exist. For example, pursuant to Health and Safety Code 1522 if there is no matching fingerprint in the criminal history database a copy of the background check results is also sent to the community care licensing facility, foster family home, or a certified family home of a licensed foster family agency. The community care licensing facility, foster family home, or a certified family home of a licensed foster family agency is not considered an authorized applicant agency, such as the Department of Social Services is, and therefore, is not statutorily authorized to receive the results of a background check containing criminal history.
DOJ technicians are strictly prohibited from discussing an applicant’s criminal record, neither can they provide legal advice or offer any other information related to the fingerprint background check itself. Pursuant to Penal Code section 11105 (t), if an adverse employment, licensing, or certification decision is made based on the results of the criminal history background check, the applicant agency must provide a copy of those results to the applicant immediately.
