Online sources aren’t consistent about whether or not Spinx will conduct a background check. However, keep in mind that most companies will need to at least verify you can legally work for them.
Here’s what you need to know about background checks:
Background checks vary from state-to-state. It’s important to know what employers can look at in your state. For example, if you live in one of the states on this list, they won’t show convictions from more than seven years ago:
- New Hampshire*
- New York*
(* sometimes certain pay or salary bracket positions require one.)
And these states won’t bother with any not guilty verdicts:
- Indiana (limited check)
- New York
However, be aware if your state is on this list. Employers will see your whole record, including the not guilty verdicts:
- Indiana (extensive check)
- New Jersey
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
- West Virginia
