Employee information


The Florida Legislature passed a new law, effective August 1, 2010, that places new requirements on persons who work with vulnerable populations. If you believe you or your entity may be affected, please go to the links for the appropriate agency to learn more.

  • State and national criminal history information is available to governmental agencies for licensing and employment as required under Florida law. If you need more information on this, you may contact the agency that governs the type of employment in which you are interested. For example, if you are interested in working for an elementary school, you would contact the local school district; if you are interested in a concealed weapon permit, you would contact the Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services/Division of Licensing where this licensing occurs. To determine if a criminal history check is required in your situation, you can search the Florida Statutes for specific laws on the Florida Legislature's web site On-Line Sunshine.
