The University of Colorado Denver | Anschutz Medical Campus performs background checks as a condition of employment and appointment. The background checks are initiated for final Candidates identified for appointments at the request of the hiring/appointing authority once such finalists are identified. The criminal history will not be provided or considered prior to making job offers. Candidates will be asked to provide personal data and sign an electronic background consent form through HireRight before the background checks are conducted. Final Candidates who fail to provide the data and authorization will not be allowed to begin work. Background checks always include review of criminal records, sex offender checks, and excluded/denied parties checks and may, for designated positions, require check of any or all of the following: civil, financial/credit, motor vehicle, and other checks. Background checks should only be requested by HR Business Partners.
The University of Colorado Denver | Anschutz Medical Campus strives to maintain a safe and productive educational, clinical, research and employment environment. All prospective employees and current employees must, therefore, consent to and pass background checks prior to any final appointment/employment.
