CLOUDWORK|PRO Criminal Background Check Policy

Who does CLOUDWORK|PRO background check?

Every technician in CLOUDWORK|PRO’s network must pass a background check. The cost of this background check is free to the technician. 

What does the background check cover?

We use a third-party vendor, Backgrounds Online, to conduct a criminal records search in the state in which the technician works. Our third-party vendor is certified by the Fair Credit Reporting Act and uses a national criminal database (“NCD”) to screen service professionals. Businesses will not be admitted to the network if their owners or technicians have the following felonies in their available criminal records*:

  • Arson
  • Assault/domestic violence/battery
  • Child abuse
  • Intimidation/terrorist threats
  • Kidnapping/abduction
  • Lewd and lascivious behavior
  • Manslaughter/murder/homicide/vehicular homicide
  • Rape/incest
  • Robbery/carjacking
  • Sex offenses

Other felony convictions not listed above that occurred in the past seven years will prevent a technician from being admitted to the network.

Contracting without a license in the past seven years will also prevent a technician from being admitted to the network. 

Our background check does not exclude technicians unless the crime at issue is a felony.

* The comprehensiveness of the NCD varies by state. Please be aware that the reporting in the NCD is particularly limited in the following states: AL, CO, DE, GA, ID, IL, KS, LA, ME, MA, MI, MS, MT, NE, NV, NH, NM, SD, UT, VA, VT, and WY.
