Utah Background Checks Laws

Arrest Records

Employers in Utah may not ask about arrest records and are advised to limit conviction inquiries to those that are job-related. A person whose arrest record has been expunged may respond to any inquiry as though the arrest did not occur, unless otherwise provided by law.

Conviction Records

Utah has no statutes that restrict an employer’s ability to obtain and/or use conviction records. However, the Utah Pre-Employment Inquiry guide issued by the Labor Commission Anti-discrimination Division provides that only inquiries into prior felony convictions are proper, and those inquiries are only advisable if they are job-related.

Utah is an “At-Will” State

In Utah, employees are presumed to be “at will.” At-will employees may be terminated for any reason, so long as it’s not illegal. There are numerous illegal reasons for termination. Typically such reasons fall into one of two large categories: illegal discrimination or illegal termination in violation of a public policy. Generally, employees who work under an employment contract can only be terminated for reasons specified in the contract.

Use Of Social Media In Utah Pre-Employment Screening

Utah law prohibits employers from demanding employees or applicants to reveal their usernames or passwords linked to social networking sites. The state of Utah allows employers to investigate specific information on the employee’s personal Internet account to ensure compliance with certain laws.
