Personnel Requirements

Fingerprinting:

The State of California requires that all individuals working with children/youth be fingerprinted and registered with the California Department of Justice. BACR’s policy is to go above and beyond this requirement by making sure all staff and AmeriCorps members are fingerprinted and registered with both the DOJ and the FBI. BACR staff can assist in the fingerprinting process. The time frame for receiving the results varies (1-4 weeks, typically). During this time you may not work alone with children/youth.

Tuberculosis (TB) Test:

The State of California requires that all individuals working with children/youth must get a tuberculin test on an annual basis. Please provide an original copy of the results of your most recent test if you had one within the last year. If you have not had one, BACR staff will assist you in locating a free or low cost clinic to do so. Please keep in mind that TB test results are available 2-3 days after the test is administered.

Required Documentation:

It is necessary in the State of California for all employees to have appropriate employment eligibility and tax information on hand. Furthermore, AmeriCorps members must be U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents of the United States and have documentation to prove this. This information is forwarded to government agencies for tax and immigration reasons. This information is very important and must be provided to the personnel manager as soon as possible. If this information is not available employment with BACR will be terminated.
