With a parent or guardian's consent and authorization, Verified First enables organizations to run background checks on minors*.
*Note: Verified First does not run background checks on anyone under the age of 15. If the date of birth (DOB) entered shows that the applicant is under 15 years old, the order will automatically be withdrawn and the HR user is sent an email about the cancelled file.
If an individual submits a date of birth (DOB) between the ages of fifteen (15) and seventeen (17), they will still be allowed to submit their electronic signature, authorization, and disclosure; but the order will not begin processing until Verified First receives authorization to do so from the minor's parent/guardian.
In order to obtain parent/guardian authorization, the minor applicant will submit their parent/guardian contact information and an email or SMS Text will be sent to the parent/guardian requesting authorization to run a background check on the minor. When the parent/guardian receives the email or SMS Text invite to give authorization, they will be required to enter the last 4 digits of the minor applicant's Social Security Number (SSN) before they can provide authorization.
Once they enter the correct information, they can provide their authorization to have a background check run on the minor and the order can begin processing.
