Is the individual notified about the request?
Yes. By law we must notify the individual of the request including who the person or agency is making the request.
They have the opportunity to challenge the accuracy of the criminal offender information. If no challenge is received by 14 days after sending notice to the individual, we will send to the person or agency making the request.
Are there responsibilities for an employer or prospective employer?
Yes. If you are an employer requesting information for employment purposes, Oregon law requires you to advise the employee or prospective employee before requesting the information. You need to tell us you have notified the individual and how you did that on the request.
What if there is no criminal record information available?
If there is no criminal information or the individual’s criminal record consists only of non-conviction data, you will receive notice the individual has no criminal record.
How will I receive the information and how long will it take?
Responses can only be mailed to you. There is a 14 day waiting period while the individual has a chance to review their information.
