Montana employment screening law: Montana Reporting Restrictions
(Enacted 1975) MCA 31-3-112 No CRA may report records of arrest, indictment, or conviction of crime, which from date of disposition, release, or parole, antedate the report by more than seven years.
No exception for employment purposes. Please note that Federal 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®.
