Who is being fingerprinted?
State and local governments may request
background checks for employment and licensing purposes if the action has been authorized by a state statute. In many states, employment and licensing categories include real estate and mortgage-related licenses, child care-related licenses, private and public employment background checks, gun permits, and more.
