Conducting Criminal Record Checks in Alaska
Employers in Alaska are permitted or required to conduct criminal record checks in accordance with these rules.
Nursing homes and assisted living homes may not employ an individual unless the individual, before beginning employment, provides to the facility the following:
- a sworn statement as to whether he or she has been convicted of an offense listed in the department's regulations
- the results of a name-check criminal background investigation that was completed by the Department of Public Safety no more than 30 days before the hire date
- two full sets of fingerprints (the facility must submit the fingerprints to the Department of Public Safety within 30 days after hiring, to be sent to the Federal Bureau of Investigation for a national criminal history record check)
