Another space on my personal report in Florida, stated that on "Date; 4-xx-1986 the applicant was issued a ticket in the city of Hollywod, ________ county Fla for driving with no tail light on the drivers side of his vehicle. A fine was paid. The applicant has previously held drivers licenses in Ohio and Indiana. If pertinent an employer may request information from the DMV of those states."
In my opinion such background checks are in adequate.
I thought I put my background check in my wallet, but no, I left it in my adequate...
Seriously (sort of), though, I wonder if the form you cite might, if the recipient actually contacted said DMVs, open those agencies to liability for failing to keep tabs on drivers' sex offenses.
Ed: Thank you Haruo , I spotted that typo after some one else had posted behind me and I did not care to have it look as if I may have edited to to change the meaning. Also, please note my deliberate use of a qualifier "a statement that says something to the effect
". And to your second quibble, note I was following the lead of this statement in the linked story "Before Myers started his church work in Florida, the convention ran a background search on him, including a search of criminal cases, motor-vehicle violations
and a credit check, according to testimony.'" Such forms cover problematic areas and are not focused on sexual activity alone. The Jury's point and mine stands, the Florida Baptist State Convention
(legal name), did not exercise due diligence as William claimed.
