Why are we to advise UC employees who have applied for an internal position to provide notice to their current department only after the background check has cleared?

This is because there is no provision in the policy to hold or guarantee the old job if an employee gives notice and the background check subsequently precludes that individual from accepting the new sensitive position. The principle here is to preserve an individual's job rights.

When hiring an employee who claims to have already cleared a campus background check, how can departments accurately verify a previous fingerprint session?

To find out if an individual has already had a background check, departments can inquire by calling UC Police Department 642-6760 for instructions.
