In cases where a business serves vulnerable populations (such as the disabled, elderly, or youth), local or state laws and/or licensing requirements may mandate screening of at least some employees. There may also be clauses included in agreements with your insurance carrier, or in contracts for use of local government-owned facilities. In the instance of your insurer, it would most likely be if they are insuring you against claims that would arise out of negligent hiring lawsuits. When using government-owned facilities where vulnerable populations will be served, screening clauses are to be expected as part of the contract.
