4. Can employers get my official Georgia criminal history?

When conducting a background check for employment and licensing, there are two ways an employer can access your official Georgia criminal history record. The most common is a name-based check using your personal identifying information (i.e. full name, date of birth and/or social security number). The other method is a fingerprint-based check. For either check, the employer must have your signed consent to access your criminal history record from GCIC. No consent is required, however, to access records of felony convictions.
