Are There Laws Requiring Volunteer Organizations to Screen Volunteers?

A volunteer organization may be required under state or local laws to screen volunteers, depending largely on the nature of the services. Some states require volunteers who will be working with children, the elderly, or persons with disabilities to be screened with a criminal background check. Additionally, licensing requirements in some states may also require criminal history checks for any person on the staff of the licensed organization.
