The Minnesota Department of Human Services
(DHS) requires background checks for all employees who could be working
with vulnerable adults and minors. A disqualifying offense is defined by DHS.
The Managing Party is only notified if the employee has passed or has been
disqualified. If there is a disqualifying offense, the employee will be
notified by a mailed letter. The employee must stop working once the Managing
Party is made aware of the disqualification.
Should the employee wish
to contest the results, they may complete a new background study with
fingerprints by contacting the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal
Apprehension. PICS will not pay for this additional process. Our
background study forms are available under Employee Forms or you can
contact Human Resources.
