Background Checks

If the University is entering into a contract that requires a third party to:

  • Enter bathrooms, locker rooms, and/or residence halls (where students or employees might be)
  • Deal with financial information such as credit card transactions and/or any other highly sensitive information

Contractors are responsible for obtaining background checks for all employees working on Loyola’s campus, including subcontractors. All of the Contractor’s employees should have passed a background check prior to working on campus. At no time should contractor send Loyola University Maryland, or any of its employees, a background check. Below, please find Loyola University Maryland’s guidelines for background check results. Contractor will do an individualized assessment based on relevance to job and the length of time that has passed between the time of conviction and application for employment, to determine whether employment should be offered to the applicant. Loyola has set forth the following recommendations, and in some cases, a discussion with the Owner is required.
