House of Worship Background Checks

House of Worship Background Check

Your organization deserves peace of mind when hiring employees or appointing volunteers to serve your membership.

Grinnell Mutual and Intellicorp® have partnered to offer a discount package* to conduct background checks on existing house of worship employees and volunteers. This allows House of Worship policyholders to evaluate the qualifications of those volunteers and current employees assigned to work children and young adults.**

We know that our House of Worship customers are always striving to provide a safe environment for the people who attend services and off-premise events held by the house of worship. Conducting background checks on those who teach and work with your most vulnerable members provides an extra layer of protection and is an important part of loss prevention.

*May not be available in all states.

**State laws vary as to whether background checks are permitted for the hiring or screening of prospective employees. Background checks should not be used for hiring or screening for employment purposes without consulting an attorney in your area. Failure to do so may result in your organization violating state laws regulating employment practices. Further, you should always obtain the prior written permission of the person for whom the background check is to be conducted, even if state law authorizes the check.
