New Background Checks for Rec Volunteers in New Jersey

By Michael Klazema on 2/10/2012

Some small towns in New Jersey are taking background checks seriously. Marlboro Township is a great example of this. A new city ordinance, which was introduced January 1st, 2012, requires that all volunteers and employees in the township, no matter what their role, needs to go through a background check. This will also include coaches, employees in the office and overall, anyone who works for the township in any capacity. Anyone who works for Marlboro Township will also be required to carry an ID card. This will include volunteers like coaches. Background checks will be done periodically on all volunteers and employees throughout their service and employment.

For companies who are interested in starting a similar program at their own business, third party background check companies like backgroundchecks.com can be extremely helpful.
