The Kansas Masonic Home (KHM) is prohibited by state law from employing (or allowing to volunteer) persons who have committed certain crimes or who have been adjudicated of certain offenses as a juvenile. Therefore, KMH conducts criminal background checks on all applicants for employment and on all applicants for volunteer positions prior to making any offers of employment or accepting the services of a volunteer. The criminal background check will be through the Kansas Bureau of Investigation (KBI). No applicant will be allowed to work or volunteer at KMH without first successfully passing this criminal background check. The KBI requires an applicant's date of birth, first name, and last name in order to process a criminal background check.
Information obtained form the criminal background checks is kept confidential and will be made available on a need to know basis, to those within KMH who may be involved in making decisions about an application for employment or for a volunteer position.
I hereby authorize KMH to conduct a criminal background check on me through the KBI, for the purpose of determining whether I am qualified to be employed or to volunteer at KMH.
I further understand that I am signing this "Release for Criminal Background Checks" in return for KMH's consideration of my application for employment or for a volunteer position and that the Date of Birth information provided below will only be used to conduct the criminal background check and will in no other way be used during the hiring process.
I further understand that any offer of employment or an offer regarding a volunteer position is conditioned upon KMH obtaining a satisfactory background check from the KDHE.
