Georgia employment screening law: Giving Employment References in Georgia

Georgia pre employment screening law provides that employers have a qualified privilege to disclose factual information on job performance or abilities of employee or former employee, made at request of employee or a prospective employer, including disclosures involving violations of law. Employers are presumed to be acting in good faith when disclosing factual information concerning job performance, ability or violations of law. (GA. Code 34-1-4)

Georgia employment screening law: Georgia First Time Offender Law– No doubt the legislature was well intentioned when it passed the first time offender statute. In accordance with this statute, certain first offender crimes in which the offender has been discharged without court adjudication of guilt may not be reported.
The law requires that a “notification of discharge and exoneration” is to be placed upon the record by the court. This discharge is not to be viewed as a conviction, and therefore may not legally be used to disqualify an applicant in employment.

Georgia employment screening law: At Will Employment Law

Georgia recognizes the doctrine of employment "at will." At-will employees may be terminated for any reason, so long as it's not illegal. Generally, employees who work under an employment contract can only be terminated for reasons specified in the contract.

Please note that Federal employment screening law mandates background checks for employees who are engaged in particular industries. The Office of Inspector General of the Department of Health and Human Services maintains a list of individuals who are excluded from participation in any of its federally-funded healthcare programs. Exclusions are due to convictions for program-related fraud and patient abuse, licensing board actions and default on health education assistance loans. Therefore, employers in affected industries should check the OIG Exclusion list before hiring employees who might work in such programs. The FACIS program is also very important when screening medical personnel. Click Here for more information on FACIS.
