Background Check Guidelines for Hiring Authorities

The City of Solana Beach conducts background checks of all candidates prior to employment. Criminal and other background checks do not take the place of reference checks and verification of employment history, which are also be conducted before a final hiring decision. In addition, all positions undergo a post offer pre-employment medical exam and a drug screen. The City contracts with a third-party provider to conduct the background checks, and through a Department of Justice (DOJ) Livescan Fingerprinting.  In rare instances, a criminal background check may be completed by an outside organization, such as a search firm, on the City’s behalf. Staff in Human Resources administer the policy and coordinate with the background check provider to conduct the applicable background check(s). Candidates are not charged for the cost of background checks.
