Are criminal background checks required each time students or other employees who are on semester assignments in sensitive positions leave the campus and return to start a new campus position?
As long as the student returns to the same sensitive position or one that is similar, criminal background checks are not required each time students leave the campus and return to start a new position. If the employee has already cleared the criminal background check for a particular sensitive position, the UC Police Department (UCPD) will continue to receive automatic updates from DOJ/FBI notifying them of any subsequent criminal convictions. Subsequently, there is no need to obtain additional background checks unless the nature of the sensitive job duties change. These automatic updates will continue to come to UCPD until a department notifies them that the employee no longer works for the University. UCPD then has to notify DOJ/FBI to discontinue the updates.
