When background checks lead to discrimination
from Church Law & Tax Report
In response to the numerous cases of child abuse and embezzlement by church employees, churches began conducting criminal background checks and credit reports on employees in certain positions. Unable to resist a good idea, many churches have expanded these checks to include all job applicants. Now this practice may have created a new problem for churches: unlawful discrimination based on race, national origin and color of skin.
